TUCKER DRAW. Tucker Draw, a valley with an intermittent stream, rises three miles north of Phantom Banks in southern Eddy County, New Mexico (at 32°06' N, 103°49' W), and runs southwesterly for twelve miles to its mouth on the northeastern shore of Red Bluff Reservoir in northwestern Loving County (at 32°00' N, 103°56' W). Its course crosses desert alluvial deposits of sand and silt. The soil in the area is generally light reddish-brown to brown sand, clay loam, and rough stony ground. The vegetation consists of creosotebush, greasewood, small mesquite, yucca, cat's claw, and sparse grasses.
