No one who really knows me would accuse me of being a die-hard duck hunter.

Jerry Kenneth Thompson Jr., 44, of Many, pleaded guilty last week to one count of possessing a firearm and ammunition after a felony conviction, according to a press release from the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries.
