    I believe he is now on the payroll of Team Wild... the Realtree Camo people, in addition to consultancy work. If you Google `Team Wild`, I think there is a write up on all the people involved...

    Simon and I work quite closely on a number of things. As far as I am aware he is not writing anymore. As NeilG has mentioned he is involved in Team Wild and he also heads up Team Real Tree UK which is taking up a fair whack of his time.

    I know Simon and Selina, and although not close friends I have them stalking with me and keep in contact. Simon has taken over as CEO for Teamwild and when I last spoke with him was about to move home further north.

    I remember Mr. Barr stating on a field sports Brittan episode that he was getting his own you tube channel anyone have any update on this?. Field sports Britain and Sporting rifle seem to be using the same contributors so I presume we won’t be seeing him on that channel. Regards,Glendine.

    Simon's been at The Shot Show in Vegas for the last week, so I'd expect some freelance work from him soon

    Cheers

    Just to confirm, I jumped the gun a bit.

    He is still writing just for the Shooting times and Shooting Sports.

    If you want to see his pretty pictures then you can follow him on Facebook. Plenty of good and informative stuff coming up this year.
