DOOLY COUNTY, GA (WALB) -

A hunting accident claims the life of a Georgia man.     

Family members found 62-year old Don Brooks from Hampton late Sunday afternoon in a field off Slosheye Road west of Vienna in Dooly County.     

Investigators say the straps on his deer stand broke, and he fell to his death.     

They're not sure when the accident happened.     

Brooks was last seen Friday morning when he left for a hunting trip.
