Leupold Vendetta Legal States

Currently, it is legal for hunting in 27 of the 50 states in the US. It is estimated that more than 66% of America’s bow hunters reside in these states. You should always check your local hunting regulations that are enforced by your state’s D&R or Fish & Wildlife department for confirmation.
It should be noted that the Leupold Vendetta is legal for recreational archery in all 50 states.
