EIGHTMILE DRAW (Sutton County). Eightmile Draw begins two miles west of Farm Road 3130 in east central Sutton County (at 30°31' N, 100°29' W) and runs southeast for twenty-one miles to its mouth on Live Oak Draw, two miles south of Interstate Highway 10 (at 30°26' N, 100°14 W). The draw is located in the western Edwards Plateau, with gently rolling terrain surfaced by loamy soils, occasionally broken by limestone outcrops, that support range grasses with scattered small stands of oak, juniper, and mesquite.
