TERRETT DRAW. Terrett Draw begins just south of Farm Road 2597 two miles southwest of the C. Valliant Ranch in northeastern Sutton County (at 30°38' N, 100°14' W), and runs northeast for nineteen miles to its mouth on the San Saba River one-fourth of a mile west of the town of Fort McKavett in Schleicher County (at 30°49' N, 100°07' W). Located in the gently rolling limestone terrain of the western Edwards Plateau, the draw is characterized by shallow and deep loamy soils occasionally broken by rock outcrops. Vegetation consists primarily of range grasses with scattered small stands of oak, juniper, and mesquite.
