Near wood burner?

Is there a problem with hanging mounts near a wood burner? A friend told me he had a striper crack and he thought it was from that. I have a few near my wood burner. Should I move them?

Move them immediately!! The heat and/or smoke will damage the mounts.

Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Especially deer mounts. The heat will cause cracking and separation of the cape/skin from the form. The smoke will tinge them as well.

You probably shouldn't even have them in the same room.

Is there a lot of difference between around a wood burner and around a fireplace?

No. I wouldn't keep them near either one.

Re: Near wood burner?

i have a wood burner in the room where i dry my mounts but i do not hang them close and i also do not burn my wood burner very hot. i could see were too much heat would dry capes unevenly a causing a mess of problems. what i mean is they would dry much faster on the outside.

He never said it would be easy;
He only said it would be worth it!

Thanks for the responses guys.

I actually have a new wood burner insert in a real fireplace. I just started using it.

Re: Near wood burner?

I can understand if you have an extremely hot wood burner that you would possibly have a problem but if you use it like a sensible person does I can't see a problem with a mount near a woodburner. I know several people with mounts either above or beside their woodburner or fireplace without a problem for years.
