Tying with Deer Hair

I’ve been tying for a few years now, but my spun deer hair heads never seem to come out right. Any tips on how to pack it tighter?

If you want to spin deer in a symmetrical way the hair must be spun on a bare hook shank. How dense you want the head varies by pattern but if you want it tight you have to jam it home hard. There are several great tools available. Cohen's is one. I have been using the same ballpoint pen with the guts taken out for years.
