This is how you make a first impression!

Remember your first day on the job? New Oklahoma Game Warden Jaylen Flynn certainly won’t forget his. This rookie was involved in a deer poaching bust his first day on the job!

The Oklahoma game wardens have been particularly busy this fall, dealing with a variety of poaching incidents. Flynn was in his first day of field training with Cleveland County Game Warden Mark Murray when the two responded to a poaching report in McClain County.

The buck in question was allegedly shot illegally with a handgun. During their investigation, the two wardens found a suspect in possession of not only the illegal buck, but also a second deer that was already packaged.

The Wardens used the hashtags #BaptismbyFire and #Thisisyourtrainingday in a post on their Facebook page. One thing is for sure, Warden Flynn will always remember his first day of work!
