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.

AUGUST REPORT

WITHOUT QUESTION THIS WAS OUR LEAST PRODUCTIVE AUGUST IN THE 27 YEARS WE HAVE BEEN IN BUSINESS. THE LARGER, TROPHY BUCKS DEFINITELY DID NOT SHOW THEIR FACES AS THEY NORMALLY DO DURING THE MONTH OF AUGUST. THE MANY REPEAT HUNTERS WE HOSTED ARE ACCUSTOMED TO SEEING BACHELOR GROUPS OF ANYWHERE FROM 3 OR 4 TO AS MANY AS 20 AT A TIME. THAT HAPPENED ONLY ON A FEW OCCASIONS THIS YEAR. CUSTOMARILY AFTER HAVING NOT BEEN HUNTED FOR 8 MONTHS BACHELOR GROUPS OF LARGE BUCKS MAINTAIN SUMMER PATTERNS AND SHOW THEMSELVES PRACTICALLY EVERY DAY IN THE SAME OR CLOSE TO THE SAME AREAS. THAT WAS NOT THE CASE. HUNDREDS OF SMALLER, IMMATURE BUCKS WERE SEEN BUT THAT IS NOT WHAT 20 YEAR REPEAT HUNTERS ARE LOOKING FOR.

WE HAVE NEVER MADE EXCUSES FOR SLOW DEER MOVEMENT AND WILL CONTINUE TO TAKE THAT STAND BUT IF THERE IS AN EXCUSE, THE EXCESSIVE AMOUNT OF RAIN WE EXPERIENCED SINCE THE MIDDLE OF MAY CERTAINLY COULD BE THE BLAME! THE WOODS ARE FULL OF MASSIVE AMOUINTS OF ALL TYPES OF NATURAL BROWSE WHICH WOULD EXPLAIN THE LACK OF MATURE BUCK MOVEMENT TO SOME POINT. THEY CERTAINLY WOULD NOT HAVE TO MOVE FAR TO GET THEIR BELLIES FULL. REGARDLESS OF THE WHYS AND WHY NOTS OF DEER MOVEMENT, IT IS WHAT IT IS! AS ONE HUNTERS PUT IT, “THERE WILL BE JUST THAT MANY MORE FOR OTHERS IN THE FUTURE”! NOT A BAD WAY TO LOOK AT IT AT ALL. HAPPY HUNTING!

 

 

 


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