A Winder man is dead after a rattlesnake bit him during a hunting trip with his family in Oglethorpe County.
Oglethorpe County Coroner James Mathews says 68-year-old Dick Rupert was bit in the calf by the snake as he climbed down from a tree stand in the woods early Saturday morning.
He died about an hour later at Wills Memorial Hospital in Washington.
Rupert's 12-year-old grandson performed CPR on the elderly man, but the man was full cardiac arrest when emergency workers arrived.
Rupert is the second person in Georgia to die of a rattlesnake bite this year. A 65-year-old Dothan man died in September after a rattlesnake bit him in the neck.
