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.

I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD SEE A TIME WHEN IT WAS CONCEIVABLY TOO COLD FOR EVEN THE HOGS TO MOVE ON A CONSISTENT BASIS BUT I BELEIVE IT WAS. TEMPERATURES RANGING FROM 12 TO 17 DEGREES AND WIND GUSTS UP TO 30 MPH ON MANY MORNINGS DURING THE MONTH MADE HOG HUNTING A REAL CHALLENGE. THE COLD WAS SO PERSISTENT THAT MANY HUNTERS CHOSE TO HUNT ONLY DURING THE EVENING HOURS WHEN TEMPERATURES WARMED A BIT LIMITING THEIR CHANCES OF HARVESTING THESE VERY ILLUSIVE ANIMALS. DESPITE INCLIMATE HUNTING CONDITIONS AND LIMITED HUNTING TIMES ONLY TWO HUNTERS DURING THE MONTH DID NOT HARVEST A HOG WHICH WAS OUTSTANDING SUCCESS UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES! THROW 4 MISSES INTO THE MIX AND HUNTERS DID MIRACULOUSLY WELL.
LOOKS LIKE FEBRUARY WILL START OFF WITH MUCH OF THE SAME AS 3"-5" OF SNOW IS PREDICTED IN TWO DAYS. WEíVE HUNTED HOGS IN THE SNOW BEFORE AND DID QUITE WELL BUT DONíT LOOK FORWARD TO DOING IT AGAIN. MAYBE ITíS NOT AS COLD WHEN SNOWING AS 12 DEGREE WEATHER IS!
A WARMING TREND SHOULD BEGIN SOON AFTER THIS FRONT HAS PASSED AND THE HUNTING IS SURELY TO BE TREMENDOUS. WE HAVE JUST 4 SPOTS LEFT TOWARDS THE END OF THE MONTH SO PACK UP AND COME JOIN US. THE SAVANNAH RIVER SWAMP IS FULL OF HOGS AND A FUN PLACE TO HUNT IFYOU CAN SURVIVE THE TRIP IN AND OUT! HAPPY HUNTING!
