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.

JUNE REPORT

WITH ABOVE NORMAL RAINFALL IN BOTH MAY AND JUNE CONDITIONS ARE EXTREMELY WET FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR. IT IS SO WET IN AREAS FOOD PLOT PREPARATION HAS BEEN VERY DIFFICULT TO SAY THE LEAST. ONE DAY WE PLOW THEM AND THE NEXT DAY YOU COULD LAUNCH A BOAT. UNWANTED WEEDS WILL CERTAINLY BE A PROBLEM THIS SUMMER. AS MUCH RAIN AS WE HAVE HAD WE WILL NEVER COMPLAIN ABOUT THE VERY WET CONDITIONS AS WE HAVE SEEN THE REVERSE, BEING SO DRY A CACTUS WOULDN’T GROW. IT WILL BE HIT AND MISS BUT WE WILL MANAGE TO GET ALL FOOD PLOTS PLANTED IN A TIMELY MANNER. THE FARMERS ARE LOVING IT AS CORN APPEARS TO BE 10 FEET TALL AND WILL PRODUCE RECORD YIELDS FOR SURE. COTTON AND PEANUTS ARE NOT SO CRAZY ABOUT ALL THE MOISTURE AS THEY ARE MORE ARID CROPS.

TURKEY POULTS HAVE NOT FAIRED WELL AT ALL DURING THIS VERY UNTIMELY WET SEASON. MAY AND EARLY JUNE MUST BE RELATIVELY DRY AND WARM FOR POULT SURVIVAL AND THAT HAS NOT BEEN THE CASE. I HAVE SIGHTED ONLY ONE SMALL GROUP OF POULTS AND QUAIL SINCE MAY. OF COURSE I HAVE NOT BEEN EVERYWHERE SO MAYBE MORE WILL APPEAR AT LATER DATES.

WITH DEER SEASON RAPIDLY APPROACHING IT IS NOW TIME TO SHIFT OUR ATTENTION TO OUR AUGUST 15TH OPENING. DEER SIGHTINGS HAS BEEN NUMEROUS JUST ABOUT EVERY EVENING SINCE THE BEGINNING OF JUNE. AGRICULTURAL FIELDS START FILLING UP AROUND 6:00 AND CONTINUE TO ATTRACT LARGE NUMBERS UNTIL DARKNESS FALLS. THAT BRINGS US TO A VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT CONCERNING TAGGING CHANGES EFFECTIVE AUGUST 15TH. AFTER MANY YEARS OF STUDY AND DELIBERATION THE SCDNR HAS FINALIZED THE FIRST EVER ANTLERED DEER TAGGING SYSTEM. ALL NON-RESIDENT HUNTERS WILL BE REQUIRED TO PURCHASE ANTLERED DEER TAGGS EITHER ONLINE OR BY CALLING THE SCDNR 800 NUMBER PRIOR TO HUNTING. ALL SUCH INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE ON THE SCDNR WEBSITE WWW.SCDNR.GOV. WE HAVE ALSO MAILED EACH HUNTER A LETTER WITH COMPLETE INFORMATION REGARDING THIS MATTER. AS ALWAYS WE WILL CONTINUE TO SUPPLY ALL ANTERLESS TAGS. IF AFTER STUDYING YOUR LETTER AND CONSULTING THEIR WEBSITE IF YOU STILL HAVE QUESTIONS PLEASE GIVE US A CALL. SAFE AND HAPPY HUNTING!
