Why the October Full Moon is called the Full Hunter’s Moon

The Fall Full Moon’s name is inspired by Native Americans and their activities for getting ready for the winter. They would start gathering provisions to get them through the winter.

In some years, the October full moon’s name switches to the Full Harvest Moon if it occurs closer to the Fall Equinox and the September full moon.

In years where the September Full Moon is closer to the Fall Equinox, the October Full Moon’s name is the Full Hunter’s Moon instead.
