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.

TURKEY SEASON HAS COME AND GONE IN ALMOST EVERY STATE BY NOW AND I CAN SAY WITHOUT HESITATION THAT IT WAS A MOST UNUSUAL SEASON. IN ALL OF THE 10 DIFFERENT STATES WE HUNTED THIS YEAR INCLUDING HERE AT HOME, GOBBLING ACTIVITY WAS VERY SPORADIC WITH LOTS OF GOBBLING TODAY, VERY LITTLE THE NEXT DAY, THEN NONE THE FOLLOWING DAY. BIRDS MIGHT BE TALKING GOOD A FEW DAYS LATER THEN HUSH AGAIN FOR A DAY OR TWO. THERE WAS JUST NO CONSISTANCY TO THEIR ACTIVITY. WHEN THEY DONíT GOBBLE THEY ARE MIGHTY HARD TO HUNT, PERIOD! THAT DOESNíT MEAN YOU CANíT HARVEST THEM, IT JUST MEANS ITíS A LITTLE MORE DIFFICULT. THANK GOD FOR CHUFAS AND DOUBLE BULL BLINDS. MOST OF THE BIRDS WE HARVESTED AT BUCK RUN WERE HARVESTED OVERLOOKING FOOD PLOTS OUT OF BLINDS. THATíS NOT AS SPORTING AS I WOULD LIKE BUT STILL MAKES FOR A VERY SUCCESSFUL HUNT AS OUR HUNTERS THIS YEAR AVERAGED 1Ĺ BIRDS EACH.
AFTER AN 11Ē FLOOD ON MAY 29, COUPLED WITH EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS OF RAINFALL TO THIS POINT IT IS VERY UNLIKELY THAT ANY POULTS HAVE SURVIVED. HOPEFULLY THINGS WILL BEGIN TO DRY OUT SOME AND THE HENS WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO RENEST. THAT ALONG WITH THE FACT THAT WE HAVE HAD TWO EXCEPTIONALLY GOOD HATCHES BACK TO BACK THE PAST TWO YEARS WE SHOULD BE IN GOOD SHAPE FOR YEARS TO COME. IN JUST THE LAST FEW DAYS I HAVE SEEN 5 GOBBLERS STILL STRUTTING HENS SO THAT IS A VERY GOOD SIGN AS WELL.
IF THINGS WILL EVER DRY OUT SO WE CAN GET INTO THE WOODS TO WORK AGAIN, IT WILL BE TIME TO START PREPARING FOR THAT OTHER SPECIAL TIME OF THE YEAR, OUR AUGUST 15TH OPENING OF DEER SEASON. LOTS OF WORK REAMAINS TO BE DONE SO HOPEFULLY PLENTY OF SUNSHINE WILL BE IN THE FUTURE FOR BUCK RUN! WISHING EVERYONE A GREAT SUMMER! BE SAFE!
HAPPY HUNTING ONCE AGAIN AND BE SAFE!
