We offer early season hunts for velvet antlered bucks, and during the regular season you can harvest a buck and doe each morning and evening of every day you hunt! That's no misprint, that's four deer per day! Our season runs from August 15th thru January 1st annually, offering the longest and most liberal deer season in the entire nation. We combine unbelievable deer hunting opportunities with great accommodations and incredible food. Buck Run Hunting Lodge is the adventure you're looking for!
Located in Hampton County, South Carolina, where whitetail deer populations and harvests have traditionally been number one or two statewide throughout the history of deer hunting, Buck Run Hunting Lodge offers the serious whitetail hunter an experience he will never forget!

We hunt deer, turkey, and wild hogs!
We have an amazingly long deer season beginning in mid-August and continuing through January 1. Our velvet buck season is one of the most popular (see video). Ranking right at the top with the August hunts are the Mid-October to mid- November rut hunts. Hunter’s average from 1.25 to 3.25 deer per hunt depending on the number of days hunted.
We hunt over 8,000 acres with 175 different stands located over prime hardwood bottoms, agricultural fields, swamps and timberland. All stands are metal fabricated and designed to hold from 1 to 3 hunters depending on the situation. You will never see the same one twice. Be sure to check out our Big Buck Photo Album for photos of some of our hunter’s harvests.

IN GENERAL DECEMBER HUNTING IS RELATIVELY SLOW AS COMPARED TO OTHER MONTHS. HOWEVER, 2014 HAS BEEN AN EXCEPTION. IT WAS NOT GREAT BUT BETTER THAN NORMAL AS THERE WAS MUCH MORE OPPORTUNITY FOR HUNTERS TO ADD MEAT TO THEIR FREZZER THAN IN PAST DECEMBERS. THERE WAS A LOT OF BREAKS AND TIME OFF BETWEEN HUNTS TO CELEBRATE THE HOLIDAYS AND SPEND TIME WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS WITH ONLY 3 HUNTS FOR THE MONTH. THERE WAS NOT A LACK OF DEER SIGHTINGS AS 26 HUNTERS HARVESTED 32 DEER WHILE MISSING 13.
I WAS ORIGINALLY GOING TO TITLE 2014 AS THE “YEAR OF THE MISS” BUT AFTER FURTHER REVIEW OF THE RECORDS IT DIDN’T TURN OUT TOO AWEFULLY BAD AFTERALL. IT SEEMED THAT THERE WERE PERIODS WHEN NO ONE COULD MISS WHILE ON THE OTHER HAND THERE WERE PERIODS WHEN EVERYONE WAS MISSING. OF COURSE MOST OF THE BIG ONES ALWAYS GET AWAY! TOTALS FOR THE YEAR WERE NOT ALL THAT BAD AS THERE WAS 223 DEER HARVESTED WITH 62 MISSES. I GUESS I CAN LIVE WITH 78%, A SLIGHT DECLINE FROM LAST YEARS 82%.
THE ELUSIVE WILD BOAR IS NEXT ON THE LIST OF QUARRY AS JANUARY AND FEBRUARY MARK EXCLUSIVE HOG HUNTING MONTHS AT BUCK RUN. THERE CERTAINLY IS NO LACK OF THE WILY CRITTERS AS LITERALLY HUNDREDS WERE SIGHTED DAILY WHILE DEER HUNTING IN THE SWAMPS. THERE SHOULD BE AMPLE OPPORTUNITY TO HARVEST PLENTY IF CONDITIONS REMAIN THE SAME. VERY FEW SPOTS REMAIN FOR OUR PEAK TIMES OF HUNTING.
NEXT ON THE LIST WOULD BE THE ALWAYS INTRIGUING WILD TURKEY. A RECORD HATCH DURING THE 2014 SPRING WILL GIVE HUNTERS HOURS OF ENJOYMENT FOR MANY YEARS. BIRDS HAVE ALREADY BEGUN TO SHOW SIGNS THAT SPRING IS NEAR AS BRIEF PERIODS OF GOBBLING AND STRUTTING HAVE BEEN WITNESSED. SOME SPOTS REMAIN AVAILABLE DURING THE FIRST TWO WEEKS OF APRIL SO DON’T TARRY IN MAKING THAT DECISION TO JOIN US FOR A TIME OF EXCITEMENT AND THRILL!
SPECIAL THANKS TO ALL THOSE WHO SHARED TIME WITH US IN 2014 IN HELPING MAKE OUR YEAR A GREAT SUCCESS! BEST WISHES FOR A PROSPEROUS AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR! SAFE AND HAPPY HUNTING!
