California Proposition 65

What is California Proposition 65?california proposition 65 prop
As hunters and outdoor enthusiasts, we at Sportsman’s Guide understand the importance of safety, including product safety. To that end, we want to ensure that all products we sell comply with applicable health and safety requirements.

One of those safety requirements is compliance with California’s Proposition 65. Prop 65 requires that residents of California be informed if the item being purchased contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer or reproductive harm, prior to purchase. Retailers must either show that the level of exposure to such chemicals is not significant or provide California residents with a warning about the chemicals in the products.

The State of California has developed an extensive list of more than 850 chemicals known to cause cancer or reproductive harm, many of which are common chemicals. This makes proving insignificant levels of all listed chemicals difficult, which is why Sportsman’s Guide (and many of our vendors) comply with Prop 65 by providing California residents with a warning, such as the following:

Prop 65 Warning

Prop 65 Warning

We want to assure you that while you may see these warnings on our website, product packaging, or directly on the products you purchase, we believe the products we sell are safe and can be purchased with confidence.

If you have further questions or want to learn more about Proposition 65, please visit
