Sorry if there is an old thread on this, but I was curious to what everyone's average shave times were. I shaved a few mule deer yesterday, and I was averaging between 5-7 minutes per cape. I get them very thin, including ears, eyes, nostrils etc. Doesn't leave much secondary prep to do other than touch ups and trimming lids. Elk are taking between 15-22 minutes depending on size/thickness.
