I would keep both in room temperature but thats just me. Those storage units can be very hot (even the ones with ventilation). Don't forget about mice that are supposed to not be in the storage buildings too. They love to suck on some deer mounts.

I would worry more about bugs and other rodents. To make yourself feel better, go to www.taxidermy.net and ask them. There you will have the nations best taxidermist to answer your question.

Fortunately you are only talking about 12 days. Unfortunately, if it gets hot and storage units get hotter and hold heat, it will be hard on your bow. Heat stretches strings and cables and is hard on your limbs. My concern for your mounts would be dust and mites. If mites get into your mounts, they will be ruined. I think I would try to find a friend who would let me leave them at his or her house, if possible.

Talk about hot. I just heard on the radio that it hit 100 outside
