FULL BUCK MOON

Traditionally, we have called July’s full Moon the “Full Buck Moon.” This name comes from our Native American and Colonial past when the Moon was used to track the seasons. Bucks are growing new antlers at this time. July’s Full Moon was also known as the Thunder Moon, because thunderstorms are so frequent during this month.
