Take this job and love it

Updated 6 years ago

In the first part of her special report, &quot:Take This Job and Love It,&quot: she heads out into the woods to become a Maine Game Warden for a day.
&quot:Alright, Amy, as you know, typical day in deer season…we could be getting into anything, so I’m deputizing you now with the coat. this is official this is official.&quot:
Once the badge was on, the calls started coming in…
we first get a report of a dead deer and deer parts left on an ATV trail…
&quot:You’re going to go in and help me find it and you’re going to dig through it and try to figure out whether it was legal or not. Through the parts Through the parts. How’s that sound Oh, that sounds great! Let’s go.&quot:
&quot:see the crow That’s usually a pretty good indication that something’s dead somewhere.&quot: &quot:start digging. Tell me you have gloves. Gloves We…do not have them. You’ve got two hands. There you go. Seriously Seriously.&quot:
BELIEVE IT OR NOT, I DID IT…BUT NOT WITHOUT A LITTLE PROTESTING…
&quot:just start rolling it over. Oh, no! Dig through it. I didn’t sign up for this! Yeah you did.&quot:
&quot:oh, god!&quot:
&quot:the best place to look is right in the rib cage for a bullet hole. Oh, hello…big one right there. Ok, so it was shot.&quot:
WE EVENTUALLY FOUND SOME SHRAPNEL…WE BAGGED IT AND SOME OTHER EVIDENCE AS PART OF THE INVESTIGATION…
THEN I HIT THE HAND SANITIZER…HARD. &quot:I’m glad I have this. But I did it! I did it.&quot: OUR SECOND CALL WAS A LITTLE EASIER… WE HAD TO TAKE DOWN AN ILLEGAL TREE STAND…THE PERSON USING IT HAD BEEN TRESPASSING…AND BAITING DEER…FROM THERE, IT WAS ON TO THE LOCAL TAGGING STATION, TO INSPECT THE BOOKS…

IT DIDN’T TAKE LONG BEFORE WE GOT ANOTHER CALL ABOUT AN ILLEGAL KILL… &quot:We have a deer that was shot on posted property after legal hours too close to a house.&quot:
&quot:there’s a bullet in that deer that you have to get out of it. Here’s your gloves. At least I get gloves this time.&quot:
AND FOR THE SECOND TIME IN A DAY, I WAS ELBOW DEEP IN DEER PARTS… &quot:there’s no apparent holes anywhere. Look in there, in the ribs and open that up. Ugh. Open that up! We have to do it…I’m looking! I don’t see any holes.&quot: &quot:see if you can get your finger right in there. Just feel around. Stick your finger right in there. Seriously Seriously. You gotta find it. oh! I feel something!&quot: &quot:ok, that’s it that’s it. piece of buckshot. That one shot would take the deer down Yup.&quot:
We bagged that evidence and the Wardens are now working the case. They have a pretty good idea of who killed that last deer. Sgt. Simmons got a good laugh watching me fumble my way through the day, but the joke was on him when the tables turned.
In Part 2, you’ll see what happened when he had to play reporter for a day…
