    Satellite Beach woman nabs big gator

    BY MARK DeCOTIS FLORIDA TODAY September 14, 2009

    Not many people claim a notable alligator kill on their first hunting trip, but Arianne Prevost of Satellite Beach can.

    Prevost, 23, guided by Capt. Peter Deeks, 23, of Merritt Island, and Prevost's boyfriend, Robert Rohmann, 23, of Indian Harbour Beach -- who comprise Native Sons Outfitters -- claimed the 11-foot gator at about 9 p.m. Tuesday in marshland between Lake Washington and Lake Winder.

    Deeks said the gator wasn't weighed, but based on its girth he estimated it between 400 and 450 pounds. He estimated its age at about 30 years old.

    "It was a total archery kill," Deeks said, adding Prevost shot the gator several times with a crossbow and finished it with a broadhead. Prevost is having the meat harvested and the gator half-mounted.

    After all, it was her first noteworthy kill of any kind.

    "I'm originally from Mississippi, so I used to hunt there with my dad," said Prevost, a mom to 10-month-old daughter, Baleigh, and an employee at Long Dogger's in Satellite Beach.

    "When I moved down here, I wasn't into it as much because the deer are so small, but I've never been gator hunting at all. I've been duck hunting."

    She began hunting with a bow about two years ago but missed last year's gator hunt because she was pregnant. But now she's got one gator tag remaining and plans on using it.

    "I can't seem to kill a deer, but I can kill an 11-foot alligator," she said.
