TURKEY CREEK (Hunt County). Turkey Creek rises one-half mile east of Wolfe City in northern Hunt County (at 33°22' N, 96°03' W) and runs southwest for 4½ miles, through an area of flat to rolling terrain, surfaced by deep to moderately deep sandy and clay loams and dark, commonly calcareous clays, that has served as crop and range land. Hardwoods, mesquite trees, and various grasses are common along the stream. Turkey Creek empties into the South Sulfur River two miles south of Wolfe City (at 33°19' N, 96°04' W).
