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.

DECEMBER REPORT

AT THE END OF EACH HUNTING SEASON WE SIT BACK, RELAX FOR A MOMENT TO REFLECT BACK AND ASSESS THE SEASON.  I CAN HONESTLY SAY THAT 2019 WAS PERHAPS THE MOST ENJOYABLE SEASON IN THE 30 YEAR HISTORY OF BUCK RUN.  SUCCESS RATES WERE GREAT, MARKSMANSHIP (80%) CONTINUED TO IMPROVE, CAMARADERIE AMOUNG HUNTERS WAS JOVIAL AND REFRESHING, SAFETY AND PROTECTION WAS ALWAYS PRESENT AND EVERY HUNT WAS ONE TO REMEMBER.  WITH JUST TWO EXCEPTIONS, WEATHER WAS NOT AN ISSUE UNTIL MID TO LATE NOVEMBER WHEN ON TWO 3 DAY HUNTS THE FIRST TWO DAYS WERE WASHOUTS.  EVEN WITH THAT HARVEST SUCCESS WAS ACCOMPLISHED TO A HIGH DEGREE.

DURING 2019 HUNTERS WERE ALSO ABLE TO HARVEST A LARGER PERCENTAGE OF MATURE 4-5 YEAR OLD BUCKS THAN EVER BEFORE.  WITH AGRICULTURAL FIELDS OF PEANUTS, CORN, SOYBEANS AND COTTON AND WITH FOOD PLOTS OF IRON AND CLAY PEAS AND OATS, OVERALL DEER WEIGHTS WERE UP FROM PAST YEARS 5-10%.

AS FOR DECEMBER, IT WAS ONE OF THE WETTEST DECEMBERS I CAN REMEMBER.  SOME AREAS IN THE SWAMPS WERE INACCESSIBLE DUE TO VERY HIGH WATERS. DESPITE THE HIGH WATERS EVERY HUNTER IN DECEMBER WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO PULL THE TRIGGER ON EITHER HOGS OR DEER.  IT WAS ONCE AGAIN VERY SIMPLY A REALLY GREAT YEAR THANKS TO ALL OF YOU!

THE TOTAL FOR THE 2019 DEER HARVEST WAS 81 HUNTERS HARVESTED 151 DEER WHILE MISSING 36.  WE NOW ANXIOUSLY AWAIT MY FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR, THE SPRING WHEN OLE TOM TURKEYS BEGIN TO GOBBLE AND STRUT THEIR STUFF TRYING TO IMPRESS THE LADIES!  THERE’S NOTHING LIKE IT!  BE SAFE AND HAPPY HUNTING!

 

 

 


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