    Utah doesn't have the type of squirrels used for eating save the Abert's down south. I don't think there's a season on them nowadays but it never hurts to check.

    You can always eat the small tree squirrels found throughout the state (I did in my college days - once) but there's not much meat and, barring the lack of hardwood trees and the mast they produce, taste like sh*t.

    Closest place I know of and have hunted for fox and gray squirrels like they have in the East and mid-West is a Colorado state forest just north of Denver.
