Not in a dirct manner. Many of the boys, like Stanley, want to bring it up, but cannot make themselves do it.

Jack insists that they killed the beast.

Just like with Ralph and Piggy, Jack's tribe insists on not talking about it as a group.  All the boys are thinking about it, but no one can find the courage to say anything...especially to Jack, whom most of the boys fear.
