    I think your bear is actually pretty decent from the stats I have read. There are definitely 400 lb, 500 lb or even bigger bears out there. But they say most bears shot average around 200-250. It is like bucks, there are mature bucks and there are monster bucks. Most of us are content with a mature animal. So congrats on your bear and your shot.

    I wish that was the truth as I believe the average bear taken is much closer to 150 lbs. at best. Bear hunters would make good fishermen when it comes to size estimates. But regardless, any bear or game animal should be regarded as a trophy no matter what size it is.

    you are actually 100% correct, most bears harvested are in the 1 1/2 - 3 year old range, averaging 150-175, at least that is what I am being told.
