  1. Why was a 6 year old out with a hunting party in the first place?

  2. I hope the parents get charged for this. and make them pay for the search efforts too. What a sorry excuse for parents. Typical Vermonters i guess.

  3. I am a “typical Vermonter” and I never let my children out of my sight.
    I just do not understand how this happened.  I hope DCF will become involved.
    Yes, the parents should pay for all costs for the search.
