Escanaba in Da Moonlight is a 2001 comedy film about hunting and hunting traditions set in the Escanaba, Michigan area, starring Jeff Daniels.

Daniels stars as Reuben Soady, a man who is the oldest in his family not to have shot a deer. He, his father Albert, his brother Remnar, and their friend Jimmer, are together at deer camp when Reuben decides to take spiritual remedies from his Native American wife, Wolf Moon Dance. 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.
