SHOOTER CREEK. Shooter Creek rises 1½ miles southeast of Selfs and six miles southwest of Tigertown in extreme eastern Fannin County (at 33°41' N, 95°53' W) and runs northeast for twelve miles to its mouth on Sanders Creek, one mile west of Unity in northwestern Lamar County (at 33°46' N, 95°46' W). Nearly flat to gently sloping terrain in the area is surfaced by loam that supports grasses interspersed with mesquite and water-tolerant conifers and hardwoods.
