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.

THANK THE LORD THAT OCTOBER HAS ENDED! WITHOUT A DOUBT IT HAS BEEN THE WORST MONTH OF MARKSMANSHIP EVER WITNESSED AT BUCK RUN. ITíS HARD TO IMAGINE HOW WE COULD GO FROM A RECORD SHOOTING PERCENTAGE IN 2013 OF 82% TO MOST LIKELY AN ALL TIME LOW IN 2014 BUT THAT APPEARS TO BE THE DIRECTION WE ARE HEADED. WHILE 71 DEER HAVE BEEN HARVESTED DURING THE MONTH AN ASTONISHING 39 HAVE BEEN MISSED. CERTAINLY THAT IS NOT HALL OF FAME NUMBERS! HOPEFULLY THERE IS VAST IMPROVEMENT IN OUR FUTURE AS WAS ON THE LAST HUNT OF THE MONTH WHERE 18 DEER WERE HARVESTED AND JUST 3 MISSED.
EVEN THOUGH SOME FINE BUCKS WERE HARVESTED DURING THE MONTH, RUT ACTIVITY HAS BEEN MINIMAL WITH VERY LITTLE CHASING GOING ON EXCEPT FOR SOME SMALLER, IMMATURE BUCK ACTIVITY. SOME MUCH NEEDED RAIN, COOLER WEATHER AND A SOON TO COME FULL MOON SHOULD CHANGE THINGS CONSIDERABLY. RUBS AND SCRAPES ARE BEGINNING TO APPEAR ALONG FIELD EDGES, HEDGEROWS AND THROUGHOUT HARDWOOD BOTTOMS WHICH IS A GOOD SIGN OF THINGS TO COME.
NOVEMBER SHOULD BE THE BEST MONTH OF THE YEAR AS USUAL WITH COOLER WEATHER IN THE FORECAST AND 95% REPEAT HUNTERS POSSESSING OUTSTANDING MARKSMANSHIP QUALITIES SCHEDULED THROUGHOUT THE MONTH. ONLY 5 SPOTS REMAIN AVAILABLE FOR THE ENTIRE MONTH SO ANYONE DESIRING A GOOD SOUTH CAROLINA RUT HUNT SHOULD CALL IMMEDIATELY TO GET IT SCHEDULED. GOOD HUNTING!
