John is hoping that the trip will be conciliatory after learning of the resentment Meech has for Hoxie over Meech’s breakup with his wife, since it was John who was secretly in love with Meech’s wife for years. The animosity between them ignites when Meech, high on his own ego, kills a huge bull moose that was the embodiment of the wilderness spirit for John and Hoxie. A confrontation between the three of them and a game warden results in murder. John, Meech and Hoxie create an unhallowed unity of secrecy and return to New Jersey.
