How long can I leave a deer cape in a citric acid /salt pickle before it ruins ? I'm new at this and my fleshing /shaving is taking longer than I thought it would.

as long as you need

But you have to keep an eye on the PH. Citic acid like to loose its PH after time so as long as you keep it at 2.0 you can have it there for over a year and longer. That should be enough time to shave it.
