Plot: Mike informs Red that he claims to have seen a ghost in the lodge late the previous night. The door into the lodge suddenly opens and closes by itself. Afterwards, Mike goes out and tells the other men about the ghost, despite being the only one who actually saw it, while the others start claiming things are being moved around, messing up the lodge. Through it all, Red is skeptical about there being any ghosts at all. Mike then informs Red that, according to some research he did, the ghost is actually a lodge member named Henry Thorkelson, the Possum Lake Wiggler (which he invented and only ever made one), whom Red claims died in a plane crash. That night, Red and Mike bring in a crate and place it in the middle of the room. Mike then places the Possum Lake Wiggler in the crate, Red turns the lights off, and Henry's ghost enters the lodge and goes into the crate, which Mike then closes, only for it to start moving away by itself.
