Buck Moon Is the Full Moon in July

By | July 24, 2021

The Full Moon that occurred last night is known as a Buck Moon. The Buck Moon is a nickname for full moons that occur in July, and it is named after the fact that male deer antlers normally achieve their maximum growth at this time of year.

How I Got The Photo:

These four Whitetail Bucks were near a cornfield at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge in Oklahoma. This cornfield is located in an area called Shugg’s Pond. Shugg’s Pond is located near Reeve’s Boat Ramp.

I had my camera resting on a bean bag draped over the open window of my pickup.
