What is the best western state for residents for hunting. Quality, numbers, and chance to draw big ticket animals?

Also hunting pressure from residents and non residents.

Alaska ! As far west , as far north , and as far away from the crowds as you can get. Winter does suck though :/

Can A resident take a friend sheep or brown bear hunting? Or does a nonresident need a official "guide or outfitter"?

Not 100% certain on this, but I believe any resident can take a friend. I thought that is how Steve Rinella went on that goat hunt without a guide. He was with his brother, who is a resident of Alaska

Should be Oregon or CA, neither give crap to the nonresidents so the resident hunting must be fantastic.:)

AK - dall sheep, fannin sheep, brown bear, interior griz, mtn goat. Mostly over the counter, all unguided. If you can save up for a plan, the whole state becomes your playground...

Next tier- ID, MT, WY would top my list
