Hunter’s Moon

“Animals are beginning to fatten up ahead of winter, and since the farmers had recently cleaned out their fields under the Harvest Moon, hunters could easily see the deer and other animals that had come out to root through the remaining scraps (as well as the foxes and wolves that had come out to prey on them).” ~ The Old Farmer’s Almanac

It has other names: Travel Moon, Dying Grass Moon, Blood Moon. One thing in common is their reference to autumn.

Though chilly weather may come a little late in some parts this year, the moon is saying it’s time to get ready.
