Storage of a deer hide

For many years I have had a deer hide hung on the wall of my bedroom and now I am redecorating and I need to store the hide until I find another place for it. What is the best way to store the hide? Should I store it flat; folded, rolled and do I put any chemicls with it to deter bugs (it doesn't have any now)?

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

roll it fur side out from head to tail. if you dont mind moth balls that may be a good way to go. but i would not put them directly on the hair. put one in a sock then roll it up inside!

Work borax into hair side, turn over, roll skin side in, covered in borax, vacuum seal in bag if possible. Bugs don't like borax. Vacuum sealing should keep bugs off, but just in case bag should fail, borax will keep bugs off.
