I've always sold fur green for the past 30 plus years. This year out of boredom I made some boards and have fleshed and dried my coyotes and cats. My question is, is there anyway I need to be hanging these. Got 7 coyote and 2 cats that are dried and are currently hanging in a spare room in house. Will go to a local buyer here in a couple week.

I'm not expert but after I've pulled the dried fur off the stretcher, I have one of the fur hanger from trapping supplier stores. I've used metal clothes hangers cut in the corner and bent to be able to kind of latch and unlatch the bottom part of the hanger, but that's been for lighter furbearers such as mink and muskrat. Whichever hanger I used, I fed the rod through the eye holes of the hide.

Do you have a unheated secure area you can use? If so that's where I would be hanging that fur.

Is there an ideal temp. to store dried fur for a few months ? I know humidity levels need to be low, but is there a min /max temp range ? My fur shed temps swing from 35* up to 55* if I'm working out there or drying fur.

just keep the fans going for air circulation. I kept mine in my shop with a fan throughout the summer with no issues. just make sure no bugs get to it if it warms up!

Have my fur laying in a unplugged freezer (mouse proof) with the door propped open for air circulation. I just make sure that leather is against leather or use cardboard or burlap sacks between layers.
