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 125 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. All hunts are by reservation only! Whether you are booking a deer or turkey hunt, reservations are limited to 6-8 persons per deer hunt and 4 persons per turkey hunt. Be sure to check out our Big Buck Photo Album for photos of some of our hunter’s harvests.

AUGUST REPORT

IN MY OPINION AUGUST IS GENERALLY OUR BEST MONTH OF THE YEAR FOR TROPHY BUCK HARVEST WITH MAYBE AN EXCEPTION OR TWO DURING THE RUT.  THIS AUGUST WAS FAR FROM THAT!  WE HAD GOTTEN SOMEWHAT DRY DURING JULY AND THE FIRST WEEK OF AUGUST BUT WE WERE NOT PREPARED FOR WHAT WAS TO COME BEGINNING THE 15TH OF THE MONTH.  FROM AUGUST 15TH THRU AUGUST 24TH WE RECEIVED 18” RAIN, NOT EXACTLY IDEAL HUNTING CONDITIONS.  MANY RECENTLY REPAIRED ROADS BECAME IMPASSABLE, MAKING IT IMPOSSIBLE TO HUNT MANY AREAS.  OVER THE PAST 30 YEARS WE HAVE REALIZED WE MUST TAKE THE GOOD WITH THE BAD AND DEAL WITH THE OPPORTUNITIES THAT HAVE BEEN GIVEN US.  WE COUNT OUR BLESSINGS AS WE WERE ABLE TO HARVEST 10 BUCKS DURING OUR 8 DAYS OF AUGUST HUNTING WHICH IS WELL BELOW OUR AVERAGE OF 40-50.

NO RAIN FOR THE PAST 7 DAYS NOW HAS PAVED THE WAY FOR US TO BE ABLE TO SPRAY ALL OF OUR FOOD PLOTS IN PREPARTION FOR OUR WINTERTIME PLANTING THE 1ST OF OCTOBER.  HOPEFULLY THE RAIN WILL HOLD OFF A FEW MORE DAYS AND WE WILL BE COMPLETELY DRY ENOUGH TO NAVIGATE ALL OF OUR PROPERTIES.

NEVERTHELESS, WE WILL START BACK ON SEPTEMBER 14TH WITH THE 15TH BEING THE BEGINNING OF OUR ANTLERLESS DEER SEASON.  IT APPEARS THAT WE DO HAVE AN OVER ABUNDANCE OF DOES THIS YEAR WHICH CERTAINLY IS MUSIC TO LOTS OF EARS AS THEY SURELY WILL MAKE GREAT TABLE FARE!

DON’T FORGET THAT A FEW WEEKS PRIOR TO EACH HUNT SANDRA WILL BE MAILING OUT COVID 19 GUIDELINES FOR YOUR BUCK RUN VISIT.  THUS FAR EVERYONE HAS FOLLOWED THE GUIDELINES TO OUR SATIFACTION AS WE SUBSRCIBE TO ALL THE CDC SAFETY GUIDELINES IN DEALING WITH THIS VIRUS.  WE WILL CONTINUE TO CHECK THE TEMPERATURE OF EVERY GUEST UPON ARRIVAL, SOCIAL DISTANCE AT ALL TIMES, WHERE MASKS WHENEVER IN A VEHICLE WITH OTHERS PRESENT AND EAT OUTDOORS (WEATHER PERMITTING) OR ON PORCHES WITH LIMITED DINING ROOM USE.  ANYONE ARRIVING WITH A TEMPERATURE OF OR THAT EXCEEDS 99.5 WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO ENTER THE LODGE OR PARTICIPATE IN THE HUNT!  THANKS AND HAPPY HUNTING!

 

 

 


Our August hunters last year were all using custom made ATG Rifles!
Maybe you should be shooting an ATG Rifle too?
