I was recently asked "When is the best time of the year to buy a game camera to get the best price?"
The answer my friend, is Post Season!
We have been trending the sales of game cameras, and have seen prices tailing off this time of year, which means better deals are there for the taking. The price reductions are due to less demand this time of year, and the desire for retail outlets to move out seasonal merchandise to free shelf space for new products.
The trend downward in prices will slow though, only to be replaced by rising prices in secondary auction markets. This occurs once the inventory levels meet the existing demands, only to see increased demand over the summer months as hunters plan for the approaching season.
We look forward to the new game camera models to be hitting the market, with new features and new high end pricing. The new products will typically be priced at retail with little savings to be had, until the newness wears off. The introduction of new game camera models will also help present model pricing to trend lower. Like a car dealer dropping prices on the 2009 model trucks to make way for the 2010s.
It is best to be a smart shopper this time of year, and deals will be found. If you have been considering purchasing a specific model of camera, take a look at the next models up. You might just find better quality cameras now priced in your price range!
