Sam Howzit (who has a terrific TP locations blog) and I were discussing this in the Part 11 thread. All the first unit stuff was California, and the nighttime Vegas drone shots are stock. But it does seem that Jason S. (who shot the behind the scenes documentaries) was dispatched to grab some establishing shots in Nevada, South Dakota, etc. Some of this footage can be seen in his documentaries, a few shots made it into the show (like the Buckhorn establishing shots, which are actually SD). It appears that Jason S. (presumably) shot the plates for Cooper’s car ride down the Vegas Strip, and also the establishing shot for the scene where the Hutchinses eat burgers in the car. But yeah, other than those couple of scraps, no shooting in Nevada.
