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.

AS TRADITION WOULD HAVE IT AUGUST HUNTING STARTED OUT ONCE AGAIN WITH A BANG. THE USUAL SLOW AUGUST MORNING HUNTING HELD TRUE WITH THE AFTERNOONS REVEALING THE TRUE NATURE OF AUGUST HUNTING AS BACHELOR GROUPS OF BUCKS SHOWED THEIRSELVES WITH REGULARITY. SIGHTINGS FROM 3 TO 14 WERE SEEN ON VARIOUS SOYBEAN FIELDS ALMOST EVERY AFTERNOON WITH MOST HUNTERS HAVING OPORTUNITY TO PICK AND CHOOSE AND THAT WAS EXACTLY THE CASE AS 12 BUCKS WERE HARVESTED THE FIRST 3 DAYS WITH 8 OF THEM BEING 8 POINTERS.
OUR 2ND HUNT SLOWED JUST A BIT BUT STILL HAD PLENTY OF ACTION FOR HUNTERS AS AN ADDITIONAL 10 BUCKS WERE HARVESTED WITH 4 OF THEM SPORTING 8 POINTS.
THE 3RD AND FINAL HUNT OF THE MONTH ENDED ON THE 31ST WITH THE MORE MATURE BUCKS TAKING A VACATION. DESPITE THE LACK OF MOVEMENT IT WAS STILL A RESPECTABLE HUNT AS 11 MORE BUCKS HIT THE DIRT WITH 2 OF THEM BEING 8 POINTERS. MANY SMALLER, IMMATURE BUCKS WERE SPOTTED BUT MOST HUNTERS DISPLAYED A TRUE SPORTSMAN NATURE ALLOWING THEM TO PASS FOR THE FUTURE!
ALL IN ALL AUGUST WAS THE TYPICAL GREAT MONTH AS ALWAYS AND STILL ONE OF THE BEST TIMES OF THE YEAR TO HARVEST A TROPHY BUCK. EVEN THOUGH NOT EVERYONE HAD THAT OPPORTUNITY MANY OTHERS DID AND WERE REWARDED HANDSOMELY! THE MONTHLY TOTALS SPEAK FOR THEMSLVES AS 33 HUNTERS HARVESTED 33 BUCKS WHILE MISSING JUST 3 AND PASSING ON OVER ONE HUNDRED MORE.
WE STILL HAVE AVAILABILITY IN EARLY OCTOBER FOR THOSE STILL LOOKING FOR A 2014 HUNT. COME JOIN US FOR SOME GREAT FUN AND FELLOWSHIP!
