Top Cowboy States In AmericaThese states are based on true cowboys, ranchers, and wranglers
The Top Ten
Everything is bigger in Texas. From boots to hats, Texas is full of cowboy culture. The reason Texas stands below Montana is because Texas is very commercialized and populated, meaning that some of the people wear the attire, but aren't really cowboys.
Texas born and raised! Proud to be a cowboy/redneck just whatever city folk like to call me. - KRAZYKILLAKLOWN
Texas is where it all started. Cattle Drives, Chili, and rodeos. This is the true home of the cowboy.
Because that is where the first ever cowboy started and where else can u go to get a barn and cows in your backyard?V 6 Comments
I agree with Wyoming being at the top of the list. I lived in Utah a majority of my life riding horses. I never owned a ranch myself. I always thought moving to Wyoming I would never see a single cowboy, I thought they would all be hiding in caves. After I moved up here I see nothing but Cowboys. They are all really nice folks and I fit in with them pretty well for the most part.
This is true. No one lives here. But everyone that dose, well they own a only 3 things. Gun, horse and ranch. (Including me)
Wyoming is very western, and very cowboy, lots of good folks, chili served from tailgates, and open range
Naturally, the cowboy state. "There ain't no real cowboys from texass"V 5 Comments
Best bull riders of all time are from Oklahoma best country singers as well am I. I I travel all over the country working West Virginia to California I live in Oklahoma City and I see more cowboy boots and cowboy hats from Oklahoma City to Tulsa can I have anywhere anywhere in the world
It is the home of the 19th century land rushes, Guthrie, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, Bull riding, the last fort still in operation that was involved in Indian Wars(Fort Sill), Ranch culture and Will Rogers.
It's a good country plains place to live.
Best Cowboys and cow punchers are out of Oklahoma. Really popular in southeastern Oklahoma...and okie cityV 2 Comments
Cowboys here are very common, from the Eastern plains to the western slope western life is the norm. Even in the front range cowboys are common, just a little more spread out.
Wisconsin dairy cows do not compare to a Colorado cattle drive. Cowboy/Ranching culture is quite different than farming.
Commercially, California seems like the last place you would ever see cowboys. But that's because the commercials don't go too far north of L.A. Up north, there's lots of farm and ranch land, and plenty if cow folks.
Northern California is home to more hill Billy he'll raisers and rednecks than most states just look at hank Williams Jr's song country boy can survive
I'd say it deserves to be moved up. I would imagine more cowboys in California than Colorado.
Oakdale, CA "Cowboy Capital of the World"V 1 Comment
In my definition of cowboy, Kansas deserves a place. These folks work hard farming crops and have the blood, sweat, and sun burns to prove it
I live in Kansas and you can't turn around without seeing a cowboy hat or a rodeo arena
There's only one reason I moved to Kansas, it's because my favorite movie is The Wizard of Oz, and Dorothy is my favorite character, and shes from Kansas, and since she loves Kansas, so do I!
Montana is as cowboy as it gets, we got extreme heat and extreme cold and everything in between. This place is certainly not for the faint of heart
The only reason I can think of for why Montana is number 7 is that all the cowboys are busy working ranches instead of voting on internet polls
Although the west side of the state doesn't show it, we are a true cowboy state. You have to have a lot of grit and vinegar running through your veins to power through the winters here

Nevada's cowboy days may have passed in the recent years, but out there away from Vegas, there bound to be a few left, as well as the NFR being held in Vegas itself

New Mexico was an American symbol of where cowboys truly started, which was Mexico with the Vaqueros. It stands to reason that because of this historical reminder, it should make the top ten list
Only real cowboys come from new mexico.
They may not be true cowboys, but farmers in Wisconsin carry their own kind of grit and blood with them. They're tough people. I would know; my entire family is composed of them. Including myself.
Growing up in Southern Idaho is the same experience as its neighbors Montana and Wyoming. Drive down the I-84, you see plenty of Cowboys and ranching land. Many of my friends were in the rodeo and/or ranching
Florida is more like descendants of cowboys who adapt some of the cowboy culture than actual cowboys, when would a cowboy be speaking Spanish or Portuguese?
