Boog, a friendly 900lb grizzly bear, lives with his owner, a Park Ranger called Beth, in a town called Timberline. The gentle, domesticated bear spends his days performing in Beth's wilderness show, riding in her truck, and sleeping comfortably in her garage. Boog lives a good life, until a pesky one-horned mule deer named Elliot comes into his life and changes it forever. Without wanting to give too much away, Elliot gets Boog into some trouble which forces Beth to despatch the pair of them to the forest for good. Lost in the wilderness, Boog and Elliot suddenly realise that the hunting season is about to begin.
All Boog wants to do is to get back to his comfy garage in Timberline. To do so, he has to learn how to make friends with the other animals and get them to help in scaring away the hunters. There are many amusing ways in which you can do this, such as setting about the hunters with Psycho Ducks and using skunks as flamethrowers! Open Season, the game, is full of such delights and 40 or so missions to prove that you can unleash your inner animal and take the forest back.
It's man against nature, and the guys with the guns are not gonna win this time!
