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 1.4 to 3.4 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.

OUR FIRST TWO TURKEY HUNTS OF THE SEASON WERE VERY TRYING TO SAY THE LEAST! AFTER A BEAUTIFUL OPENING MORNING ON THE 15TH WITH BIRDS GOBBLING VERY GOOD AND WELL UP INTO THE MORNING THINGS WENT SOUTH VERY QUICK. RAIN DOMINATED THE NEXT FOUR DAYS HOWEVER SOME SHORT BREAKS IN THE DOWNPOURS ALLOWED FOR MODERATE SUCCESS AS HUNTERS WERE ABLE TO HARVEST 4 WHILE MISSING 3. I GUESS RAIN DROPS GOT IN THEIR EYES. ON HUNT NUMBER TWO THINGS IMPROVED A LITTLE AS ONLY 2 OF THE NEXT 5 DAYS WERE RAINED OUT. THE RESULTS OF A LITTLE GOOD WEATHER WAS APPARENT AS 3 HUNTERS HARVESTED 5 BIRDS WHILE MISSING 2. HUNT NUMBER THREE CONTINUED ALONG THE SAME LINES WITH 1.7” THE FIRST DAY AND 35-40 MPH WINDS ON DAY TWO. WE SIMPLY COULD NOT GET A BREAK. THE FINAL DAY ENDED WITH BEAUTIFUL WEATHER, BIRDS GOBBLE WELL BUT NO CIGARS FOR THE WATER LOGGED AND WIND BURNT HUNTERS. THE HENS STOLE THE SHOW. I HATE THOSE THINGS IN THE SPRING.
HOPEFULLY APRIL WILL START OFF MUCH BETTER AND THE BIRDS WILL HAVE SOMETHING TO GOBBLE ABOUT WITH SUNNY AND CALM DAYS. NO MORE SPOTS ARE AVAILABLE THIS YEAR. MAYBE WE CAN CATCH YOU NEXT YEAR! THE GOOD NEWS IS DESPITE ALL THE RAIN WE HAD LAST SPRING AND SUMMER WE HAVE PLENTY OF JAKES FOR 2015. SHOULD BE A BLAST! SHOOT STRAIGHT!
