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.

MAY REPORT

WHILE THE MID SECTION OF THE COUNTRY BATTLES FLOODING AND TORNADOES, WE BATTLE A SEVERE DROUGHT.  NEVER BEFORE HAVE I WITNESSED TRIPLE DIGIT TEMPERATURES DURING THE MONTH OF MAY.  THAT KIND OF HEAT USUALLY BLESSES US DURING JULY AND EARLY AUGUST.  TEN CONSECUTIVE DAYS OF BLISTERING 100 PLUS DEGREE DAYS DURING THE LAST TWO WEEKS OF THE MONTH HAVE SCORCHED AND BLISTERED EVERTHING IN SIGHT AND OF COURSE THERE HAS BEEN NO RAINFALL WHATSOEVER EXCEPT FOR THE ¾” WE RECEIVED THE FIRST WEEK.  ACCORDING TO THE WEATHER EXPERTS THE HIGHEST TEMPERATURE EVER RECORDED IN MAY WAS 94 IN 1960.  THAT RECORD WAS SHATTERED BY 10 DEGREES.  THESE CONDITIONS ARE BEGINNING TO TAKE A TOLL ON EVERYTHING FROM LAWNS, FLOWERS, BROUSE FOR WILDLIFE, TREES TO AGRICULTURAL CROPS.  FOR THOSE FARMERS WITHOUT IRRIGATION BETTER LUCK NEXT YEAR.  ALL EARLY CROPS OF CORN AND COTTON HAVE BEEN LOST OUTSIDE OF IRRIGATION.  PLANTING ANY KIND OF FOOD PLOT IS CERTAINLY OUT OF THE QUESTION.  HOPEFULLY THERE IS A COOL DOWN WITH SOME MUCH NEEDED RAIN IN THE FUTURE.  WE STILL HAVE PLENTY OF TIME FOR GETTING FOOD PLOTS PLANTED.  WITH 100 FEEDERS RUNNING WILDLIFE SHOULD BE FINE AS LONG AS THERE REMAINS SOME WATER IN CREEKS, STREAMS AND PONDS.

THE GOOD NEWS IN ALL OF THIS IS A DRY, WARM MAY MEANS PLENTY OF BABY TURKEYS AND THAT SEEMS TO BE THE CASE AS WE ARE SEEING LOTS OF HENS WITH POULTS ON A DAILY BASIS.  FAWNS ARE ALSO BEGINNING TO SHOW THEMSELVES AS THAT SPECIAL TIME OF YEAR WHEN ANIMAL LIFE IS RENEWED IS UPON US.

WE HOPE EVERYONE HAS HAD A GREAT SPRING AND HOPE THAT YOUR SUMMER IS SAFE AND FILLED WITH HAPPINESS AND EXCITEMENT!  STAY COOL!

 

 

 


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