Re: Cypress Creek Hunting Lodge in South Carolina

I am going there in March, I will let you know how it is. There are some others here who have been there and gave me good reports, maybe they will chime in.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: Cypress Creek Hunting Lodge in South Carolina

I've been there twice and I love it. Let's put it this way...I didn't even see a hog the first time I hunted there (2009), but I was still so impressed with the operation that I booked again the following year. I ended up getting one last year. These aren't penned-up hogs, so success is highly dependent on the weather.

I'm assuming you're interested in hog hunting, but I can also tell you that there are a ton of turkeys, deer, and coyotes down there as well. I should note that although I didn't get a hog in 2009, I did kill a coyote.

Shut Up and Drill

Re: Cypress Creek Hunting Lodge in South Carolina

Check out their blog, that will give you somewhat of an idea how the hunting is. I have been down there many times and as another stated, the success is dependent on the weather and moon phase.

Re: Cypress Creek Hunting Lodge in South Carolina

I've never been to Cypress Creek but if you are looking for a place to hunt hogs, I hunted Cedar Knoll last year with my cousin. We were so impressed, we told them to reserve us a spot this year and we are heading back in May. I have always wanted to hunt hogs but refused to hunt in a fenced in area. I'm glad we tried this place

Here's the bigger of the two I shot.

I had opportunities to shoot a few more (we were allowed 6 in total). I shot the one above the second morning then shot a smaller one the next day. You are only allowed to shoot one per sitting (you hunt morning/evening). After I shot the smaller one, I had six bigger than the one above show up and had to sit and watched them. From then on, I decided to only shoot if they were bigger than the one I first shot. Out of six sittings, I had shots/opportunities during four of them.

Re: Cypress Creek Hunting Lodge in South Carolina

We were so unhappy with our guide that we left half way through our hunt.

My son and I hunted there twice. In 2011 it was great. We returned in 2012 and had a different guide.

Our guide in 2012 could not be bothered to even remember what we were hunting. We booked a hunt for deer during rut. I did agree to a combo hunt because the guide talked me into the combo hunt. So from then on all the guide talked about was putting us on a stand where we'd see lots of hogs. I asked to be put on a stand where we could see deer and I was told "we had plenty of time".

We spoke with the owner and he told us all stands were the same and that we had plenty of time. That was when we decided to leave.

We hunted 3 sessions and only saw 3 does on our last session and this was during rut.

It is pretty depressing when the guide doesn't care enough to remember what you are hunting while all of his friends are getting deer.

So we left and won't be back.

Re: Cypress Creek Hunting Lodge in South Carolina

Allegheny rook, I have never hunted there but if you're in the checking out a place to hunt phase you might want to shoot Lorider a PM. I know he has a place in SC he's been hunting for years and he loves it. You could probably also just do a search and find it. As far as the post above mine, I'd take it with a grain a salt...1 post and it's only on this topic....it always leads me to think

Sab, yup thats my name...
