The Buck and Boar
Thank you for inquiring about the Buck & Boar. The Buck and Boar is located in beautiful Calhoune county S.C. The property that makes up the Buck and Boar has been managed exclusively for trophy deer / wild boar over the last 30 years. Our commitment to produce the highest quality Whitetail Deer hunting and European Wild Boar hunting possible led to the erection of five miles of game proof fence to enclose the entire property. Herd population, buck to doe ratio, and predators are more controllable. The cost of European strains needed to continue the progress of our trophy boar management can now be justified. Our herds are producing trophy boar and trophy bucks that far exceed our original expectations.
You will be hunting animals that are wild, born and bred on their own, within the enclosure. A managed wild herd, not a stocked farm raised animal. Over thirty food plots and year around supplemental feed are offered to supply needed nutrition. Hunts are limited to ensure high success on trophy quality animals. Our hunts can be tailored to meet the needs of an individual or a large group. First time hunters to seasoned vet's, young or old are all welcome. We cater to smaller groups than most outfitters, your needs will be met by our staff and your harvest goals are our number one priority.
About this trip
The deer herd at the Buck and Boar is producing more quality bucks each year than the year before. Be our guest and hunt the "Old Growth" hard woods that cover the acorn ridges the bucks call home.
Deer hunting is done from elevated shooting houses and ground blinds. This hunt is not physically demanding and can be tailored to suit most any hunter.
Trophy Deer hunts are extremely limited. No more than a dozen were sold for this year. We harvest only the oldest bucks in the herd. If you are looking to harvest a mature, heavy rack buck this hunt is for you.
Last year our success rates were 100%. Most bucks we harvest fall in the 130-150 B&C class. We have harvested bucks up to 180". Bucks over 150 inches are rare. I say this because I do not want you to show up with unrealistic harvest expectations.
S.C. deer season runs from August, 15th - January, 1st. Deer can be harvested in full velvet the first two weeks of the season. Our rut runs from mid Oct.- mid Nov. The rut is an excellent time to book a hunt. These deer hunts will book up so call early to secure your dates.
The Buck & Boar will gladly custom tailor a hunting package to meet the needs of the individual or large group.We do not believe in hidden charges. We will not charge you any unexpected add-on costs. You will be charged a daily fee to stay, eat and hunt, and a trophy fee for each animal you harvest. Your daily fee is determined by the size of your group. This is charged per person per day. In addition to your daily fee you must pay a trophy fee for each animal you shoot. Trophy fees are determined by the size/species of the animal. Your daily fee x the days you were here added to any trophy fee(s) that apply = the total price of your hunt.
Daily fee: The daily fee covers meals, lodging, ice, snacks, bottled water, guides, in-field trans., shooting range use and as much time in the stand as you would like.

Your hunt will be reserved for the species of animal you book it for. Adding on additional animals without advance notice is usually not a problem but in some cases herd density and the demand of future bookings will not allow us to do so. Informing us of your harvest goals when you book will keep this from being a problem.
Deposit: A $200.00 non-refundable deposit is required in advance for each guest. We accept M/C, & Visa over the phone and in camp. Personal checks are accepted for advance deposit only, no checks are accepted in camp!
The Buck & Boar is not a kill-pen.We do not offer canned hunts. If you’re looking to kill an animal without investing time and effort you may be disappointed hunting with us. Our animals live in an enclosure but they are wild and wise to hunting pressure. We do not guarantee a kill. Most of our hunting parties enjoy an eighty percent success rate and take home top quality big game trophies.Give yourself a fair chance at success by allowing ample time to get the job done.
Wild Boar or Ram: one and a half to two and a half days
Wild Boar-Ram combo: two and a half days
Trophy whitetail deer: three to five and a half days
We will be glad to itemize the cost of your hunting package with you when you call. We will let you know what you will owe with and without your intended harvest.
