Put in a nice full long amount of white marabou for the wing.

Place 3-4 strands of peacock herl over the marabou, make it the same length as the marabou.

Wrap in some mule deer to start to form the head. On the first clump, leave a collar of deer hair that extends back over the wing. Do not trim this collar when forming the head!

After wrapping in a bunch of deer hair (use small amounts and push the deer hair back to make room for more, you should use 3-4 clumps to form the head).

Trim the head to give it a bullet shape.
