n.— «By far, the cagiest of the night hunters (and the hardest to apprehend) were those who walked into a back field, orchard or remote spot near their homes with hand-held lights and rifles. These “foot-jack-uhs,” as they were called, usually were dressed warm for the occasion and were extremely familiar with the countryside they hunted.» —“Memories from a Game Warden’s Diary: Foot-jack-uh!” by John Ford in Brooks Village Soup (Maine) June 4, 2006.
