We offer early season hunts for velvet antlered bucks, and during the regular season you can harvest four per hunt! 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 7,000 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.

IT WAS ANOTHER GREAT YEAR AT BUCK RUN! EVEN THOUGH THE 2016 SEASON WAS VERY INCONSISTENT AS FAR AS DEER MOVEMENT IS CONCERNED HUNTERS MANAGED TO HARVEST MANY TROPHY ANIMALS EVERY MONTH. AS WAS THE CASE DURING THE 2015 SEASON THE MAJORITY OF BOTH MAJOR AND MINOR FEEDING PERIODS OCCURRED DURING HOURS OF DARKNESS MAKING FOR SOME TOUGH HUNTING ON OCCASSIONS NEVERTHELESS PATIENT HUNTERS PREVAILED MOST OF THE TIME WITH GREAT SUCCESS. COUPLED WITH A 15” RAIN DURING THE EARLY PART OF THE SEASON AND AN EARLY OCTOBER HURRICANE THAT DUMPED ANOTHER 12” OF RAIN AND TOPPLED OVER 200 HUGE HARDWOOD TREES ACROSS ROADWAYS AND STANDS WE WERE STILL ABLE TO PULL TOGETHER A VERY RESPECTABLE SEASON. FINAL NUMBERS FOR THE YEAR WERE 151 HUNTERS HARVESTED 169 DEER WHILE MISSING 42.
WITH A FEW HOG HUNTS TAKING PLACE IN JANUARY AND FEBRUARY WE ARE AS ALWAYS ANXIOUSLY AWAITING THE OPENING OF OUR MARCH 20TH TURKEY SEASON. IT SHOULD BE A FABULOUS SEASON AS UNSEASONABLE WARM WEATHER HAS TOMS STRUTTING HENS EVERYWHERE. WE ARE LITERALLY SEEING DOZENS OF STRUTTING TOMS EVERYDAY. SOME SUSTAINED COLDER WEATHER WHICH WILL CERTAINLY ARRIVE BEFORE WINTERS END SHOULD HOPEFULLY SLOW SOME OF THIS ACTIVITY PRIOR TO THE SEASON OPENING. IF NOT IT WILL BE OVER WITH BEFORE IT STARTS WHICH HAS NEVER HAPPENED. ONE HUNT REMAINS OPEN FOR THE 2017 SPRING SEASON WITH 4 SPOTS AVAILABLE (APRIL 10-12). CALL SOON IF YOU ARE INTERESTED!
WE HAVE TALKED TO MANY FOLKS THE PAST MONTH REGARDING DEER HUNTING IN 2017 AND AVAILABILITY DURING CERTAIN TIMES OF THE YEAR. OPENINGS CHANGE ALMOST DAILY THIS TIME OF YEAR WITH HUNTERS MAKING PLANS WELL IN ADVANCE OF THEIR HUNT TO INSURE A TREASURED SPOT. I SAY THIS AS WE HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY BLESSED WITH REBOOKINGS THIS YEAR AND AS A RESULT THERE REMAINS ONLY 6 HUNT DATES AVAILABLE FOR 2017 WITH LIMITED OPENINGS ON EACH. THEY ARE AS FOLLOWS: ONE IN AUGUST, ONE IN SEPTEMBER, ONE IN OCTOBER, ONE IN NOVEMBER AND 2 IN DECEMBER. THERE IS ANYWHERE FROM 2 TO 6 OPENINGS ON EACH OF THESE HUNTS SO ACT SOON IF YOU HAVE INTEREST IN HUNTING AT BUCK RUN IN 2017.
