The eastern United States is known for extremely big black bears, from New York down to the Carolinas. The mountain areas primarily. They have a particularly good genetic for big bone structure out there.
We have bears in Minnesota that get to 7-800 pounds mostly found where the bush meets farm fields and tho they are that heavy overall they don't seem to get that large skull bone structure.
