TURKEY CREEK (Briscoe County). Turkey Creek rises in east central Briscoe County (at 34°31' N, 101°00' W) and flows eastward for six miles to its mouth on the Little Red River in western Hall County (at 34°32' N, 100°54' W). The local terrain ranges from flat to gently sloping and is surfaced by moderately deep to shallow silt loam that supports mesquite and grasses. The creek was once part of the old JA and Quitaque (Lazy F) ranges.
