I don't live anywhere near utah, but i think your best bet would be to contact the state or local police and ask them.

Usually the local sherriffs office should have maps of no shooting zones and can probably recommend a good place to shoot

I shoot out west all the time and have never had a problem. As long as its not posted you should be good. You can also go south west of Utah lake and shoot all over down there.

You have a real nice shooting range out around 56 West and 21 South. Utah State owned Lee Kay Shooting Center. I think shooting in Salt Lake county does rule out some of the West Desert.:)

Nope, sorry. Ask around the forum.
