The Hunter's Moon is the first Full Moon after the Harvest Moon, the Full Moon nearest the autumnal equinox, and it gets its name from hunters who tracked and killed their prey, stockpiling food for the winter ahead. In general, a full moon allows hunters to clearly see their prey during the night.
