Reuben Soady goes to the deer camp with his father Albert, his brother Remnar, and Jimmy “The Jimmer” Negamanee from Menominee. If Reuben doesn’t manage to shoot a buck by the end of the season, he will become the oldest Soady in recorded history not to have achieved this task, a taboo that leads people in the community to believe he is jinxed. Reuben breaks with tradition, taking advice from his Native American wife, Wolf Moon Dance, who offers spiritual remedies to protect him from evil spirits and attract his prey to him. Along the way he finds help in the spirit of his dead great
-grandfather, Alphonse Soady, who guides him to shooting a buck sent to him by the spirits.
