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

WHILE MOST OF THE NATION WILL LOOK BACK ON 2020 AS A VERY TROUBLING YEAR CONFRONTED WITH COVID 19, RACIAL UNREST AND POLITICAL TURMOIL; AT BUCK RUN WE WILL REMEMBER IT AS A YEAR OF FIRSTS, WORST AND BEST.

OUR DEER HUNTING SEASON STARTED ON AUGUST 15TH AND RIGHT OUT OF THE GATE WE WERE GREETED WITH 18” OF RAIN IN OUR 8 DAYS OF HUNTING FOR THE MONTH SO AUGUST, 2020 QUICKLY BECAME THE WORST ON RECORD IN OUR 29 YEARS OF BUSINESS.  GENERALLY HARVESTING BETWEEN 50-75 BUCKS DURING THAT TIME PERIOD, WE WERE LIMITED TO JUST 10 DUE TO THE FLOODED CONDITIONS.  TRAVEL TO AND FROM STANDS BECAME IMPOSSIBLE LIMITING ACCESS TO JUST A SMALL PORTION OF OUR MANY STANDS.

SEPTEMBER IS GENERALLY THE SLOWEST MONTH OF THE YEAR FOR LARGER CLASS BUCKS AND VERY REWARDING FOR LOTS OF ANTLERLESS DEER HOWEVER, THIS YEAR WAS THE EXACT OPPOSITE AS HUNTERS HARVESTED A RECORD NUMBER OF QUALITY BUCKS AND DOES AS WELL.

OCTOBER AND NOVEMBER HELD SERVE AS THE TWO BEST MONTHS FOR TOTAL NUMBERS OF DEER HARVESTED.  OVER ONE PARTICULAR 11 DAY PERIOD HUNTERS HARVESTED 32-8 POINTS, 1-9 POINT AND 2-10 POINTS.  HUNTING REMAINED VERY CONSISTANT DURING OCTOBER AND NOVEMBER AND CONTINUED TO REWARD HUNTERS WITH GREAT SUCCESS FROM MID-OCTOBER THROUGH THANKSGIVING.

DECEMBER IS GENERALLY A HIT OR MISS MONTH GREATLY DEPENDENT UPON THE WEATHER.  DURING 2020 EVERYTHING FELL IN LINE AND WE EXPERIENCED THE TWO BEST HUNTS DECEMBER HAS EVER OFFERED.  EVERYONE ON THOSE HUNTS EITHER HARVESTED MULTIPLE DEER OR HAD PLENTY OF OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO.  THERE WERE TWO EXCEPTIONAL BUCKS HARVESTED DURING DECEMBER, ONE A HUGE 9-POINT AND THE OTHER A 10 POINT.

THAT COVERS THE WORST AND THE BEST OF 2020 SO LET’S DON’T FORGET THE FIRSTS.  OUR RECORD FOR THE MOST FIRST TIME BUCK KILLS FOR A SINGLE SEASON IS 21 AND 2020 TIED THE NUMBER 4 SPOT WITH 11.  OVERALL, 2020 WAS A FANTASTIC YEAR WITH GREAT SUCCESS RATES AND THE LARGEST NUMBER OF TROPHY CLASS BUCKS EVER HARVESTED!

MAKE PLANS NOW FOR 2021.  WE ARE ALREADY FILLING FAST.  HAPPY NEW YEAR AND HAPPY HUNTING!

 

 

 


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