Hunter's Moon: A Story of Foxes is an animal fantasy novel by Garry Kilworth, first published in 1989. (It was also published under the title The Foxes of Firstdark.) Garry Kilworth's later novel Frost Dancers: A Story of Hares includes an appearance by incidental characters in Hunter's Moon.

The two main characters are Red Foxes: O-ha the vixen, and Camio, an escapee from a zoo. Hunter's Moon is set in our own world, with the assumption that related animal species communicate in their own language. There is an element of mysticism both in retold stories and in many of the animal characters' beliefs and experiences.
