Seems like everyone is pretty darn close 275 to 300... I don't hunt bear but I do know they look bigger than what they are. I have had some close encounters with them while bow huntin.....

Yep, bears are the most over estimated animal in the woods for weight. I would say that bear is over 200 and under 300.

Gotta agree with that, my first bear looked pretty darn big to me, way bigger then a deer. It dressed out to 93lbs.
