We offer early season hunts for velvet antlered bucks, and during the regular season you can harvest a buck and doe each morning and evening of every day you hunt! That's no misprint, that's four deer per day! 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 8,000 acres with 175 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. Be sure to check out our Big Buck Photo Album for photos of some of our hunter’s harvests.

AFTER A 3 WEEK LAYOFF HUNTING RESUMED ON THE 15TH AND HARVEST COULD NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER. AT THE CONCLUSION OF OUR FIRST HUNT 7 HUNTERS HARVESTED 17 DEER WHILE MISSING 5. IT DIDNíT TAKE THINGS LONG TO COOL OFF AS THE NEXT HUNT NETTED JUST 7 WHILE MISSING ANOTHER 5. ON THE FINAL HUNT OF THE MONTH THINGS DID NOT IMPROVE AT ALL AS THE FINAL GROUP DESPITE SEEING 5 BUCKS AND 50 PLUS ANTLERLESS DEER WERE TOTALLY SKUNKED WITH ONE MISS.
AFTER ANOTHER WEEK LAYOFF WE WILL RESUME HUNTING ON THE 6TH AND DEER ACTIVITY SHOULD IMPROVE IMMENSELY AS TEMPERATURES BEGIN TO COOL A BIT AND SIGNS OF THE RUT BEGIN TO APPEAR. SCRAPES AND RUBS HAVE BEEN PRESENT FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS NOW BUT MORE AND MORE ARE BEING SEEN EVERYDAY AS BUCKS ARE MAKING THEIR PRESENCE KNOWN AND ARE BEING SEEN MORE FREQUENTLY.
IF WE CAN MANAGE TO HOLD OFF THE THREAT OF EXTREME WEATHER CONDITIONS FROM THE SOUTHEAST IN THE WAY OF HURRICANES AND TROPICAL DEPRESSIONS HUNTERS SHOULD EXPERIENCE MUCH IMPROVED HUNTING CONDITIONS FOR THE REST OF THE MONTH. LETíS ALL PRAY THAT WILL BE THE CASE!
THERE REMAINS VERY LIMITED SPOTS AVAILABLE BETWEEN NOW AND THANKSGIVING SO MAKE HASTE IF YOU INTEND TO GET A HUNT IN THIS YEAR. AVAILABILITY IS AS FOLLOWS: 10/11-13 (2),
