Whats with the siberian Tiger sizes?

Is it true that siberian tigers used to be very big or at least a lot bigger before the downfall of the siberian tiger population in around the 1940s? What is their current average weight (male and female)?
I want to discuss why they have gotten smaller.
Wikipedia https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siberian_tiger
says: "Their reduced weight as compared to historical Siberian tigers may be due to a combination of causes: when captured, they were usually sick or injured and involved in a conflict situation with people." Ref: 10. 
Prey is less abundant i can see due to hunting of prey by humans, and that pine nuts and acorn etc is rare in the wild and they have to feed animals in the wild to make sure siberian tigers dont starve too: https://www.rt.com/news/321757-winter-ru...rs-starve/
