My name is Barney Faletti, and I live in Braidwood, Illinois with my wife and two children. I work as a butcher/manager at our family’s store Faletti Meats. I have over 35 years experience hunting and guiding all over the United States and Canada.

I have been on Foiles’ pro staff since 2001, and feel truly honored to be able to represent Jeff and his great products.

Waterfowl hunting is my first love, with turkeys being a very close second. To me, there is something truly addicting about talking to the animals with your calls, seeing them react and even better when they talk back to you. I enjoy bringing my wife and daughter out hunting and fishing, and can’t wait to include my young boy.  I feel it is very important to get women and children interested in the outdoors and hunting in order to keep our traditions alive.

In 1991 I graduated from SIU in Carbondale.  Then in 2002 two of my friends and I started the Braidwood Lake Hunt Club in central Illinois. We have since become one of the top goose clubs in Illinois, and can be seen on several of the “Falling Skies” videos.
