look up any word, like blumpkin:
 
11.
A person who is able to find things when no one else is able to find them. A scavenger in the truest sense of the word that usually attacks in pairs. This came from the tradition that the jackal will sometimes lead a lion to its prey.

Oppositely, the term can also be used in a negative connotation to describe someone who relentlessly asks you for something that is in your possession and takes it without offering anything in return.
Example 1:

Person #1: Do you have any blow?
Person #2: No man I couldn't find any. Let's call Jason, he's a jackal, he'll know where we can get some.

Example 2:
Person #1 walks into party
Jason: Hey man you got any blow I can have?
Person #1: Get away from me you fucking Jackal I just got here.

3.
A pack of men, who prey upon unsuspecting females, waiting to pounce upon their vunerable victim, having taken what they want, the next Jackal in the pack moves in. Generally poor at conversation, Jackals tend to grunt, flash cash at the bar for attention and drink too heavily. They show no respect and are happy to indulge in each others cast offs. Jackals are the lowest of the low when it comes to womanising skills, and their general performance in relationships is piss poor! Subtlty and integrity are not weapons in the Jackals hunting armour.
Fashion is not a Jackals strongpoint, they are often scruffy, with signs of poor personal hygiene - but why would they need to bother about such things?

Afterall they are gods gift to women!
Jackal 1 "urg huh hu grr"
Lady "pardon"
Jackal 1 "Urg you coming home with me tonight"
Lady "havent you got a girlfriend"
Jackal 1 "she needs to deal with it"

Jackal 2 "huh fancy giving me head, why not, well i ll just share your taxi, get out and not pay then" (outside the jackals den - not flashing your cash now are you)

Jackal 3 " ows bout it, grr, never been turned down before" (but he has, most nights!!)

4.
An unathletic, freeloading valueless student at the University of Chicago, distinguished by their pretentiousness, self-entitlement, and general air of douchebaggery.

A slightly migratory species, jackals inhabit the library during finals week, the dining hall during feeding times, and hibernate in their dorms in between. Unlike their territorial namesake, jackals are completely oblivious of others. They create large messes and romp about at all hours of the night, showing utter disregard towards athletes and people with worthwhile goals.
"I fucking hate the Reg during finals week, it's completely overrun by jackals"

Student 1: "I don't have time to wait in line behind all these lazy hipster non-athlete dbags in bartlett"

Student 2: "Yeah, fucking jackals"

Wyatt: "Has anyone seen Dan today?"
Cooper: "No, didn't you hear? he's doing 25-life for going on that jackal killing spree"
Wyatt: "Damn. Well, can't blame him."

Jackals belong to the family Canidae, along with dogs and are very similar to coyotes. Jackals are omnivores and scavengers. They are adapted to hunting small prey such as small mammals, birds and reptiles.
Person 1: Is that a coyote?
Person 2: Naaah, that's a jackal.
