There is no animal to which humans fear more than a wolf. In the Timberline Forest humans and animals believe that a werewolf walks loose, so that terror is unleashed and measures taken that do not benefit humans.
Taking advantage of the confusion appears Shaw, an old hunter who decides that under the circumstances it is best to reopen the hunting season, something that is not good for the animals of the forest.
Right now, Boog, Elliot and the others are in danger, because Shaw is loose in the woods and has permission to hunt, which means that he will shoot all the animals in his path, including our friends.
All the animals in the forest are going to have to arm themselves with courage to try to find the werewolf and close the hunting season, before Shaw kills any of them.
