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.

I SUPPOSE THERE IS SOME GOOD AND BAD IN ALL THINGS DEPENDING ON ONES PERCEPTION. THE GOOD IS WE NEEDED SOME RAIN JUST NOT 6” AT ONE TIME. WE CERTAINLY EXPECT IT TO BE COLD IN FEBRUARY BUT NOT IN THE MID 20’S WITH A 20-30 MPH WIND BLOWING MOST DAYS. WE ALSO EXPECT SOME MISSES EVERY NOW AND THEN BUT CERTAINLY NOT 90% OF THE TIME. FROM BOBCATS, FOXES, RACCOONS, COYOTES AND EVEN ARMADILLOS TO OUR HUNTING QUARRY (HOGS), HUNTERS VERY SIMPLY STATED COULD NOT SHOOT STRAIGHT AND HIT ANYTHING!!! FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE MONTH UNTIL THE VERY END IT WAS ABSOLUTELY DISASTROUS. IT CONTINUES TO BE AN ONGOING THEME AT BUCK RUN. WE HAVE STARTED TO REFER TO IT AS “SWAMP VOODOO”!
LET’S MOVE ON TO SOMETHING MORE POSITIVE. ON CLEAR, RAIN FREE MORNINGS (THERE HAS BEEN A FEW) TURKEYS ARE BEGINNING TO GOBBLE MORE AND MORE. MOST ARE STILL IN LARGE BACHLOR GROUPS WHILE OLDER, MORE MATURE TOMS ARE BEGINNING TO SPLIT OFF TO FORM SMALLER BREEDING GROUPS, STRUTTING HENS AND DEFENDING THEIR TERRITORIES. CHUFA PATCHES ARE STILL BEING VISITED FOR MANY HOURS EACH DAY MAKING LOCATING BIRDS VERY EASY. THESE AREAS SHOULD BE MID-MORNING AND AFTERNOON HONEY HOLES.
HOPEFULLY THE WIND, RAIN AND COLD WILL SUBSIDE FOR OUR MARCH 15TH TURKEY SEASON OPENING ALLOWING HUNTERS MANY ENJOYABLE DAYS IN THE BEAUTIFUL SPRING WOODS! THERE REMAINS ONLY 4 AVAILABLE OPENINGS FOR THIS YEAR DURING THE APRIL 7-13 TIME FRAME SO GIVE US A CALL IF YOU WANT TO EXPERIENCE THE TIME OF YOUR LIFE. HAPPY HUNTING!!!!!
