Anyone here from idaho?
I'm visiting ketchum in June and was going to bring some guns to shoot if I can find out if there are any ranges near ketchum or public shooting spots.
Tried google but didn't get any reliable info.
Thanks in advance.

Ketchum is surrounded by public land. If you can't find a range, just pick a safe spot with a solid back stop and have fun. Please remember to pick up after yourself.

I used to live in Ketchum; wish i still did....
There are a few options. There's the Wood River gun club, down by Bellevue, you'll see it to the left as you drive up 75 to ketchum, before Bellevue. They have a rifle range. Then there's the Hailey Shooting Range, to the East of Hailey, which is rifle, pistol and clays. I think it may be the "Blaine County Range" but could be wrong.
Closer to Ketchum there's the Sun Valley Gun Club, which is clays.
Beyond that, take a look at a map. You can shoot on BLM land, and there's a lot of it. What i used to do was the head out Warms Springs Rd., about a half a mile after the hot springs, (which makes a great apres-shooting soaking location) and find a spot with no one around. There's stretches where you can find good yardage... just go up the road enough not to frighten anyone having a dip in the hot springs.
After that, get a beer and a prime rib at the Pioneer Saloon... and check out the crazy taxidermy and punt guns they have on the walls.
