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 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.

AFTER A GREAT START WITH PLENTY OF BIRDS BEING HARVESTED IN MARCH THE FIRST WEEK OF APRIL BROUGHT ABOUT A SUDDEN CHANGE IN GOBBLING ACTIVITY. IT WAS ALMOST LIKE SOMEONE HAD FLIPPED THE SWITCH TO THE OFF POSITION. VERY LITTLE GOBBLING AND EVEN FEWER GOBBLER SIGHTINGS WAS THE NORM FOR THE FIRST HALF OF THE MONTH. EXTREME WARM WEATHER DURING JANUARY, FEBRUARY AND MARCH WAS MOST LIKELY THE CONTRIBUTING FACTOR AS SINGLE HENS AND A REDUCTION IN THE TOTAL NUMBER OF HENS SIGHTED DURING THE BEGINNING OF APRIL WOULD INDICATE THAT LAYING AND SETTING HAD BEGUN MUCH EARLIER THAN NORMAL.
DESPITE BEING DOWN ON THE TOTAL NUMBER OF BIRDS HARVESTED AND CONSIDERING WE HAVE DECIDED TO CUT BACK ON THE TOTAL NUMBER OF HUNTERS AS WELL AS DAYS HUNTED IT WAS A VERY RESPECTABLE SEASON. HAVING ONLY HUNTED 18 DAYS, 16 HUNTERS HARVESTED 24 MATURE GOBBLERS WHILE MISSING JUST 3. ALL BUT 2 HUNTERS HAD OPPORTNITY TO HARVEST A BIRD.
THE 2017 SEASON HAS GREAT PROMISE AS WELL WITH MANY, MANY JAKES HAVING BEEN SIGHTED THROUGHOUT THE SEASON THIS SPRING. IT PROMISES TO BE GREAT FOR US AS WELL AS WE HAVE ONLY ONE HUNT OPEN FOR THE 2017 SPRING SEASON. CALL NOW IF YOU HAVE ANY INTEREST!
HAPPY HUNTING ONCE AGAIN AND BE SAFE!
