Outdoor enthusiasts, it’s your favorite week of the year. The Southeastern Wildlife Exposition is about to take over the city and with it all the game, guns, and gear you could hope for. Plus, plenty of fun events for the fam and fido too. With that in mind, we’ve got the best of the fest covered for you here. Plus, in honor of SEWE’s ode to all things wild and woolly, we’ve tracked down the city’s most unusual pets. Sick of cats? How about a prairie dog? Just sayin’. For more SEWE events, check out charlestoncitypaper.com/sewe. Enjoy.
