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 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.

ONCE AGAIN AS TRADITION AND HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF AUGUST HAS BEEN FANTASTIC AT BUCK RUN! DEPSITE THE EXTREME HEAT AND LACK OF RAINFALL DEER MOVEMENT REMAINED GOOD TO VERY GOOD THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE MONTH. MANY TROPHIES HAVE BEEN HARVESTED AND WILL FIND A NEW HOME GRACING THE WALLS OF HUNTERS WELL INTO THE FUTURE. FROM THOSE HARVESTING THEIR FIRST BUCK EVER, TO THOSE HARVESTING THEIR FIRST VELVET BUCK EVER, TO THOSE HARVESTING THEIR LARGEST BUCK TO DATE, AUGUST WAS AUGUST; WHAT ELSE CAN I SAY!
AS PLANNED AT THE CONCLUSION OF LAST DEER SEASSON WE HAVE DECREASED OUR NUMBER OF HUNTERS PER HUNT FROM 12 TO 8 AND THAT ALONE HAS PROVED TO BE ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS WE HAVE EVER MADE. NOT ONLY HAS IT TAKEN THE PRESSURE OFF OF US IN COORDINATING THAT MANY FOLKS BOTH MORNING AND EVENING, IT HAS TAKEN 33% OF THE PRESSURE OFF THE DEER AND DEER STANDS. IT HAS ALSO ALLOWED US TO OFFER A MUCH MORE PERSONAL TOUCH TO EACH HUNTER THROUGHOUT THE DAY. MORE CHANGES WILL BE IN THE OFFERING NEXT YEAR!
IN BRINGING AUGUST TO A CLOSE, THE NUMBERS ARE AS FOLLOWS: 25 HUNTERS HARVESTED 20 BUCKS WHILE MISSING JUST 5 AND 4 HOGS MISSING ONLY ONE. ALL BUT 9 OF THE BUCKS WERE 8 POINTS OR BETTER THE LARGEST TOPPING THE SCALES AT 185 POUNDS WITH SEVERAL OTHERS RANGING FROM 175 TO 150 POUNDS. THANKS TO ALL WHO HELPED ANOTHER AUGUST BE SO GREAT!
