_[Her guide Capt. Peter] 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.
