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.

WHEN YOU LIVE IN THE SOUTH WEATHER IS VERY HARD TO PREDICT! ONE DAY ITíS COLD, THE NEXT DAY ITíS HOT. ONE DAY ITíS WET, THE NEXT DAY ITíS DRY! IT IS VERY HARD TO PLAN ANYTHING. AS WET AS IT WAS A MONTH AGO, IT IS NOW THAT DRY WITH SOME TIMELY RAINS NEEDED TO SUSTAIN OUR MOST RECENTLY PLANTED FOOD PLOTS. IT DOES NOT TAKE LONG FOR EVERYTHING TO DRY OUT WHEN TEMPERATURES ARE ALREADY HOVERING IN THE MID 90íS TO 100 ON A DAILY BASIS AND HEAT INDEXES TOPPING TRIPLE DIGITS. HOPEFULLY MORE FAVORABLE WEATHER PATTERNS ARE IN OUR FUTURE.
THERE IS MUCH GOOD NEWS ALONG WITH SOME BAD! WE HAD ORIGINALY THOUGHT WE WOULD HAVE A VERY POOR TURKEY HATCH AND SURVIVAL RATE AT BEST BECAUSE OF ALL THE MAY AND EARLY JUNE RAIN BUT THAT IS PROVING NOT TO BE THE CASE. MANY NEW HATCHES OF POULTS ARE NOW BEING SEEN ON A DAILY BASIS SHOWING GREAT PROMISE ONCE AGAIN FOR THE FUTURE OF TURKEY HUNTING AT BUCK RUN. TURKEYS ARE AMAZING BIRDS AND HENS CERTAINLY KNOW A WHOLE LOT MORE THAN I WITH THE ABILITY AND INSTINCT TO RENEST WHEN NATURE THROWS THEM A CURVE.
THE ONLY OTHER THING TO REPORT IS WE ARE IN A MAD DASH GETTING READY FOR OUR AUGUST 15TH DEER SEASON OPENING. WITH MUCH ANTICIPATION AS ALWAYS WE LOOK FORWARD TO ANOTHER GREAT YEAR ENTERTAINING MANY FRIENDS, BOTH OLD AND NEW! VERY FEW SPOTS (JUST TWO TIME SLOTS) REMAIN AVAILABLE FOR THE 2016 SEASON SO IF IT IS YOUR INTENTION TO BOOK A HUNT I WOULD ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO SO QUICKLY! SAFE AND HAPPY HUNTING!
