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.

SEPTEMBER REPORT

IF WE WERE ABLE TO HUNT THE ENTIRE MONTH OF AUGUST IT UNDOUBTABLY WOULD BE OUR BEST MONTH OF THE YEAR FOR MATURE BUCK HARVEST.  UNFORTUNATELY, WITH THE SEASON OPENING ON THE 15TH OF THE MONTH WE ARE LIMITED TO JUST 17 DAYS OF HUNTING.  AS PREVIOUSLY MENTIONED IN THE AUGUST REPORT IT WAS OUR WORSE AUGUST EVER WITHOUT QUESTION!

FROM A HISTORICAL POINT OF VIEW AND ACCORDING TO RECORDS DATING BACK TO 1976, SEPTEMBER IS ALWAYS OUR POOREST MONTH OF THE YEAR AS BUCKS ARE GOING THROUGH A TREMENDOUS TRANSITION PERIOD, SHEDDING THEIR VELVET, BREAKING OFF FROM BACHELOR GROUPS AND BEGINNING TO DEFINE THEIR OWN TERRITORY.  DURING THE PAST MONTH, AS WAS AUGUST THE EXACT OPPOSITE WAS TRUE.  THIS SEPTEMBER WAS OUR BEST EVER FOR OVERALL HARVEST NEARLY DOUBLING ANY SEPTEMBER FROM THE PAST.  WITHOUT EXCEPTION, ALL HUNTERS ENJOYED TREMENDOUS SUCCESS INCLUDING ONE 19-YEAR-OLD YOUNG LADY FROM PA WHO HARVESTED 6 ON HER 3 DAY HUNT.

MOVING FORWARD INTO OCTOBER THINGS COULD NOT BE LOOKING ANY BETTER.  WITH COOLER WEATHER MAKING ITS DEBUT MUCH EARLIER THAN USUAL IT APPEARS DEER MOVEMENT WILL BE VERY CONSISTENT AND STRONG FOR OUR OPENING OCTOBER HUNT ON THE 10TH OF THE MONTH.  FIFTY DEGREE LOWS AND 70 DEGREE HIGHS WILL BE THE PERFECT RECEPE FOR SUCCESS!

ALL WINTER FOOD PLOTS HAVE BEEN PLANTED AND WERE AIDED BY .8” RAIN IMMEDIATELY UPON COMPLETION SO OUR PREPARATION COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE PERFCTLY PLANNED!  WE NOW SIT BACK AND WAIT ON YOUR ARRIVAL.  HAPPY HUNTING!

 

 

 


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