    im going to have to put my deer heads and ducks in storage.
    What type of storage building would y'all suggest I rent to store them in?
    Thanks in advance

    Climate controlled. Heat will be the worst thing for your mounts

    This, and make sure they have a good pest control guarantee. I have 4 deer mounts and several turkey fans that were ruined after being in storage over a summer. I need to find a taxidermist and some new capes to have them redone.

    Find a buddy with a sweet man cave that only shoots dinks and let him hang them on his walls for a while.

    Moths ate my only two whitetail mounts, while IN my house. Fur is gone. Totally.

    Might think about moth balls.
