A similar question was asked 3 years ago here, I'm sure the correct answer has changed since then:

What was the highest bounty ever awarded to an answer? And, how do I find the corresponding question?

    "What was the highest bounty ever awarded to a question?" - zero. You can't award bounties to questions. :D – Mysticial Jan 24 '14 at 19:46

    A single bounty can only be up to 500, so I'm assuming you want the highest cumulative amount of bounties on a single answer? – animuson Jan 24 '14 at 19:48
  • Yes. Didn't see how to do it in Data Explorer, maybe I missed the appropriate field. – Johnny Bones Jan 24 '14 at 19:49

Here's my version of the query:

http://data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/162721/answers-with-the-most-bounty-points

There are a total of 11 answers with more than 1000 rep from bounties.

The most of which is this answer: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/5864000
Which gained +1500 from 5 bounties.

4

Using this query:

SELECT SUM(BountyAmount), PostId FROM Votes
WHERE VoteTypeId=9 AND BountyAmount>0
GROUP BY PostId
ORDER BY SUM(BountyAmount) DESC

It looks like the highest cumulative amount is only +1500 on this answer.
