A Hunter's Paradise
Bear Run is a hunter's paradise with a variety of regional wild game available in one place. Our unique location on the edge of the Okeefenokee Swamp allows us to offer you some of the best hunting opportunities in the Southeast.
With over 30,000 acres at your disposal, we have one of the largest and most diverse wildlife resources in Georgia. From record breaking Black Bear to wild hogs, whitetail deer, turkey, wild duck and even alligators. Without a doubt, Bear Run has it all!
We have one of the highest bear populations in Georgia and we hold the new state record for a B&C skull measurement at 23 inches. The top two highest weight records for black bear (570 & 574 lbs) were taken in our area as well. Why go anywhere else?
Come for a day or spend the weekend. We offer comfortable accommodations and home cooked meals with extended stay packages.
Bear Run is located in south Georgia near the town of Council on the edge of the legendary Okeefenokee Swamp.

"The Best Kept Hunting Secret in Georgia"
"Any hunt at Bear Run is always in combination with a hog hunt along with whatever else is in season, and this is a hunt that anyone can afford. Bear Run has a modest but comfortable southern lodge where some of the best hunting stories ever have been told around some of the best home cooking that you have ever put in your mouth. You can have a hunt on Bear Run with lodging included for less than what you would pay for your round trip air fare to most places out of state. When you look at the cost of travel plus an out-of-state license and a trophy fee for a hunt out of Georgia, you could have had a real hunt right here at home. If you check out the internet for prices on deer hunts and bear hunts, you will be wonderfully pleased with the prices at Bear Run."
