HUNTING — Alyssa Donelan, a sophomore at Central Valley High School, had a busy Saturday — with more than one date.

She donned camouflage clothing and left home at 5 a.m. to go turkey hunting with her father, Jim. When the turkeys stood them up in the morning, Alyssa move on to a remarkable transition.

She was out of her camouflage and into the hair dresser by 1 p.m.

By 5 p.m. she'd transformed from Rambo to ravishing just in time for the arrival of Sawyer Starnes, a senior, who picked her up for the CV homecoming dance.

The day was dubbed a success, but Alyssa still has an unfilled turkey tag, and an ego that needs a little buffing.

While Alyssa and five girlfriends slept in after a post-dance sleepover at her house, her dad and brother left home at 5 a.m. on Sunday. The boys returned with a turkey about 10:30 a.m., just as Alyssa and the other girls were waking up.
