Got email that these were on sale

Probably the best bang for your buck for a non-cellular game camera

Likely a good deal. But also likely to be last year's model. At least what I can find. I'm still running dark ops from 4-5 years ago. May be time to try the flash.

Ok serious question. I have been wanting to upgrade to all Browning cameras. I have learned there is about a dozen different models of the strike force. There is probably close to 25 different Browning cameras. Do they just change the model name every 6 months? Does anyone know what the 50 dollar difference in this browning strike force model and the next browning strike force model is?
I am tired of crap cameras and want to do it right.

I ordered one. Its a great deal. The naysayers are comparing 16mp to 22mp. There's a big difference.

My 3 year old strike force, while a great camera, just went mammaries up. It eats batteries in about 2 days. I'd like to get a couple more brownings as I've had good luck overall but I'm a bit cautious if I'm going to have to replace them every 3 years. Thanks for the tip, I'll probably order one.

Getting 3 years out of a game camera isn't bad at all. Most I've gotten out of any brand is about 3 years of constant use.

Thanks. It's about what I figured. This one I replaced the lens cover as it was cracked and it was taken out of service for close to a year but it has been a workhorse otherwise. I've got it set at 8MP and the pictures are still excellent.

Yeah 3 years is actually pretty solid. And thereís been threads on these cams, maybe try switching what battery your using. Lithiumís Iíve heard is best for them

I ordered 2 from Midway Tuesday evening after I saw this thread. However, I got an email from Midway this morning that they oversold by 1. I was refunded for the one camera. Did any of you that ordered experience this?
