The Full Moon in October is known as the Hunter’s Moon, as it was the time to go hunting in preparation for winter. This full Moon is also called the Travel Moon and the Dying Grass Moon.

This is the month when the leaves are falling and the game is fattened. Now is the time for hunting and laying in a store of provisions for the long winter ahead.

This is the first Full Moon following the Harvest Moon last month. It rises around sunset and sets around sunrise, the only night in the month when the Moon is in the sky all night long.

The moon will be 100% full on Tuesday, Oct. 27 at 8:05:08 a.m.

Full MoonOctober: The Hunter’s Moon

After the fields have been reaped, the leaves begin to fall and the deer are fat and ready for eating.

Hunters can ride easily over the fields’ stubble, and the fox and other animals are more easily spotted.

(Some years the Harvest Moon falls in October instead of September.)
