This feels like a pretty big stretch, but... My prefix, proudest hunter, still stands guard o'er home and grain; My suffix, firm foundation, from which space is realised; My infix, part outstanding, leaves a gap for us to work.

I'll have another guess: Soldiers carry their rations slung across their back; I have no need for food, yet I too have a sack. I do not stir; I remain silent and still; Watching, waiting, to hear the enemy trill. Then I strike, warding off the warriors of the air, But soldiers of the ground, me they do not fear.

I am not very good at word games. I regularly use a hand-held crossword solver to help me finish quick crosswords. (Forget about cryptic crosswords.

Codeword puzzles are usually designed to have an approachable way of starting. (I am fairly sure it would be possible to make one that was solvable in principle but really hard to find one's way into, but the people who make them aren't aiming for that.)

Once you've inserted all of the starting letters, I normally see if any of the words (or certain sub-strings of them) pop out to me. For example, given ----I-G, you can be confident that the penultimate letter is a N. Comparing words in the puzzle with common prefixes and suffixes often gives a few more letters. Also, when checking a word, remember that ...

English is not my first language, so this is was hard for me. Starting: A word-list with 350.000 words is reduced to these 114 words. Some of them are names of species, for instance aegla, and there might be some impossible letter-combinations I've missed.
