the average sized bear are from 150-200 pounds, but most commercial bear outfitters generaly have a few big ones around. Personaly I've taken 6, the largest was 207, this is hunting on public land.
Bear meat can be decent eating but for the most part, its something you can't cook alone and make it really good, cook a hindquarter with lots of taters, onions, and carrots, mix in some ranch dressing and onion soup mix, and its surprisingly good. lil greasy but still good.
