DEER CREEK (Briscoe County). Deer Creek rises at the breaks of the Llano Estacado in northwestern Briscoe County (at 34°43' N, 101°24' W) and runs northeast three miles to join the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River in Armstrong County (at 34°46' N, 101°21' W). The creek was in the old Tule division of the JA Ranch and is still partly within the JA properties. It crosses variable terrain surfaced by shallow to moderately deep silt loams that support primarily mesquite and grasses.
