Wyoming- by a long shot. Come on- Cheyenne Frontier Days. I spent many a summer on a large farm/ranch in Nebraska, which included a lot of horseback riding (rarely for pleasure), cattle drives (albeit, small distances- maybe a day and a half's work), branding, castrating (yikes) and the like-saddling up my own horses and taking care of them, equipment and the stables and I would still consider myself a wimp compared to just about any cowboy in Wyoming haha. It just feels honest cowboy country to me whenever I've visited.

I think Wyoming wins this contest easily. As for Texas, the percentage of Texans employed in farming or ranching has plunged over the decades; it's no longer much of a cowboy state. Unless you count the "fauxboys" who dress up like cowboys without actually having done ranch-work. In that case, Texas has plenty of those.

Oklahoma seemed pretty cowboy to me when I was there.

All of the Great Plains states. The Dakotas on down to Texas, plus most of the West. California, Montana, Nevada, Wyoming, Colorado, Arizona, and New Mexico all give off the impression as states once belonging to the Wild Wild West. Utah possibly though I would say its Mormon presence really separates it from the rest of the west.
