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 1.25 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.

WITHOUT BEATING AROUND THE BUSH I MUST SAY THAT THE 2015 DEER SEASON WAS THE MOST DISAPPOINTING AND LEAST PRODUCTIVE ONE IN OUR 24 YEARS OF BUSINESS. AS PREVIOUSLY REPORTED TEMPERATURES WERE AND STILL ARE 20-30 DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL. IMAGINE AN 85 DEGREE CHRISTMAS! THATíS UNHEARD OF IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD. RAIN AND WIND PREVAILED AT LEAST 75% OF THE TIME ON PRACTICALLY EVERY HUNT MAKING HUNTING CONDITIONS VERY TOUGH AND NOT VERY ENJOYABLE TO SAY THE LEAST. WITH FEW EXCEPTIONS DEER MOVEMENT WAS AT A MINIMUM ON MOST HUNTS WITH THE MAJORITY OF ACTIVITY TAKING PLACE BETWEEN 1:00 AND 4:00 AM. TRAIL CAMERAS CAPTURED ALL THE ACTIVITY AND THATíS WHAT KEPT GIVING US HOPE. PLENTY OF TROPHY CLASS DEER HAD THEIR PICTURE TAKEN WHILE FEEDING AT NIGHT BUT UNFORTUNATELY NOT AS MANY AS WE WOULD LIKE WERE POSED WITH HUNTERS.
ENOUGH OF THE NEGITIVE, LETíS TALK ABOUT THE POSITIVES. WE DID MANAGE TO HARVEST A GOOD PERCENTAGE OF 3 AND 4 YEAR OLD BUCKS. WE ALSO TIED OUR ALLTIME HIGH SHOOTING PERCENTAGE AT 82%. HUNTERS HAVE FINALLY LEARNED TO BRING QUALITY RIFLES AND MORE IMPORTANT QUALITY OPTICS. OF COURSE THE ATG RIFLES THAT WE MANUFACTURE HERE ON SIGHT PLAYED A BIG ROLE IN THAT SUCCESS. ITíS SOMETHING TO CONSIDER! TOTALS FOR THE YEAR WERE 170 DEER HARVESTED AND 37 MISSED. NOT TOO SHABBY FOR MOST BUT CONSIDERABLY LOW FOR US.
ITíS NOW TIME FOR A LITTLE HOG HUNTING BUT MORE IMPORTANT WE ARE DAYS CLOSER TO OUR TURKEY SEASON OPENING ON MARCH 19TH. UNLIKE THE DEER IT SHOULD BE OUR BEST SEASON EVER WITH LONG BEARDS BEING SEEN BY HUNTERS EVERYDAY AND IN EVERY PLACE! HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL. WE HOPE 2016 BRINGS YOU THE VERY BEST!!!!!!
