Deer Hair ?

I was triming a few deer hair bugs last night and noticed a pattern to them that I haven't in the past. What I noticed was that while the backs were well packed, the part by the hook eye was not. The picture below shows what a typical bug. I don't think that I could fit any more hair on the hooks, but wonder how to tighten up the front 1/2 of the fly. Any suggestions on technique?
