350 or so... just shot this one last week here in PA archery Bear season he went 276
I think 350lbs is just about right. A few things large bears have in common is their ears will look too small for their heads and their bellies almost drag on the ground. A bear with both these traits will often be 450+.
Other clue is the height of the top of the back at the shoulder. 14-16 inch logs puts the top of his shoulder at 32-34 inches. A really large bear will push 38-40 inches at the shoulder. 55 gallon barrels that are upright are 33.5 inches high. A 500+ monster is often tall enough he can eat food off the top of the barrel with all 4 legs on the ground and without having to lift his chin.
