OKLAHOMA DRAW. Oklahoma Draw originates in southeastern Donley County (at 34°52' N, 100°41' W) a mile southwest of Hedley and runs northeast for twelve miles to its mouth (at 34°59' N, 100°33' W) on the Salt Fork of the Red River, twenty-five miles northeast of Clarendon near the Donley-Collingsworth county line. It was once part of the RO and Diamond Tail ranches. The local terrain is flat to gently sloping, and native vegetation consists primarily of mesquite brush and grasses in loose sand.
