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?

I just started spinning deer hair a couple months ago. I was told to use belly hair, make sure you pull or brush out the guard hairs, make about 2.5 loose wraps and then pull tight and around the hook. I'm not great at it but I've not had any real problems with it. It took me about 6 tries before I got a consistent spin. 239 Flies has a good video on spinning the devil's hair.
