Stripes for the fourth and freedom and the full moon for a buck’s growing antlers! What you say? July is the month for freedom and fireworks but it is also for the full buck moon. At this time, a buck’s antlers are in full growth mode just making all hunters squirm with excitement as they think about hunting come fall.

How did the Full Moons get their names? The Full Moons have descriptive names that come from Native American tribes who used the Full Moons as a sort of calendar to keep track of the seasons. The Almanac tends to use the names of the Alnquins who were prominent along the Atlantic Coast and into the interior along the St. Lawrence River and around the Great Lakes.
