Relocating mounts to semi-rustic cabin

I have one buck and one antelope mount I may move to our cabin. I was just wondering if there are any issues with doing this in a semi-rustic cabin. So there isn’t any climate control. It will be exposed to different temperatures (freezing in the winter) and last year humidity in the cabin was bad.

make sure they are not in direct sunlight, otherwise deer fur will fade.

Mice also. Those things can scale a vertical wall.

My buddy had a bad mold issue at his cabin last year.

This is the one thing I've found. We have big windows that face east. Mounts fade. I don't think temperature would do much, but excessive humidity might.
