The remedies cause all sorts of issues at the camp, with Reuben, Jimmer, and a Department of Natural Resources conservation officer (whose help they enlist) all getting possessed at various times. Reuben eventually meets up with the spirit of his great-grandfather, who guides him to a successful shot.
