A "Beaver Blood Moon" occurs when the Moon, Sun, and Earth stand in a line with the Earth in the middle. The Earth's shadow then covers the Moon reflecting light from the Sun giving the Moon a reddish, coppery tone to its color.

The first couple weeks of November is when beavers are getting their homes stocked up with food for the long winter ahead. Beavers will also build reinforcements for where they live and damn they have created.

I have a beaver right now cutting trees near one of my hunting spots. I had to move a trail camera over the weekend because the beaver began to cut the tree the camera was attached to and I didn't want the beaver to haul off the tree with my camera attached.

Another reason this particular lunar eclipse is called the "Beaver Blood Moon" is many years ago in North America this was also the time to trap beavers for those who wanted to make money from selling the animal's pelts.

There have been plenty of studies done that indicate a full moon can have kids act up, parents act up, people are more impatient, more car accidents, and more people get into trouble.

According to the Farmers Almanac, the word lunatic comes from the Latin word luna which means moon. Throw in a lunar eclipse and you might have a recipe for lots of erratic behavior.

A full moon in general tends to have people act erratically. A full moon that is also a lunar eclipse could cause even more erratic behavior from humans. So there is a chance the "Beaver Blood Moon" could very well have an effect on the election outcome.

The good news is if you are a democrat, republican, or independent and your candidate loses, you can always blame it on the "Beaver Blood Moon."
