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.

JUNE REPORT

JUNE, 2020 WAS PERHAPS ONE OF THE MOST PLEASANT SUMMER MONTHS WE HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED IN THE LOWCOUNTRY.  WITH MORNING LOWS OFTEN IN THE 50’S AND HIGHS IN THE 70’S AND LOW 80’S AND RELATIVELY LOW HUMIDITIES, OUTSIDE WORK DEMANDS WERE EASILY ACCOMPLISHED WITHOUT MUCH PHYSICAL EXERTION ALLOWING US TO GET WELL AHEAD OF THE GAME FOR THIS TIME OF YEAR.  A SUDDEN SWING FOR THE WORSE IN THOSE VERY PLEASANT CONDITIONS STARTED NEAR THE END OF THE LAST WEEK OF THE MONTH AND APPEARS TO BE THE NORM ENTERING JULY MAKING AFTERNOON WORK VERY DEMANDING ON US OLDER FELLOWS AND EVEN SOME YOUNGER ONES AS WELL.

AVERAGE TO ABOVE AVERAGE RAINFALL FOR THE MONTH HAS CREATED SUPERLATIVE GROWING CONDITIONS FOR AGRICULTURAL CROPS OF CORN AND COTTON AS WELL AS SUMMER FOOD PLOTS BEING PLANTED FOR BOTH DEER AND TURKEY.  ALL CHUFAS FOR THE TURKEYS ARE IN THE GROUND AND PREPARATION IS CURRENTLY UNDERWAY FOR IRON AND CLAY PEAS FOR THE DEER.

LOTS OF TURKEY POULTS OF VARIOUS SIZES ARE BEING SPOTTED THROUGHOUT BUCK RUN PROPERTIES AS ARE WHITETAIL FAWNS IN LARGE NUMBERS.  A MAJORITY OF OUR DOES APPEAR TO HAVE GIVEN MULTIPLE BIRTHS WITH SOME HAVING 3 AND ONE DOE HAS BEEN SPOTTTED WITH 4 FAWNS.  ALL THIS SAYS A LOT ABOUT WEATHER CONDITIONS, FOOD SOURCES AND OVERALL MANAGEMENT.

WE CONTINUE TO MAKE IMPROVEMENTS DAILY AND CONTINUE TO CREATE THE BEST HABITAT AVAILABLE FOR ALL WILDLIFE IN PREPARATION FOR THAT COVETED AUGUST 15TH DEER SEASON OPENING.  WE HAVE LESS THAN 10 OPENINGS FOR THE 2020 SEASON ON 2 DIFFERENT HUNTS SO BE MINDFUL, THEY WON’T LAST LONG.

PLEASE STAY SAFE DURING THE COVID 19 PANDEMIC ADHERING TO ALL SAFETY GUIDELINES AND AS ALWAYS HAPPY HUNTING!

 

 

 


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