WHITE DEER CREEK
WHITE DEER CREEK. White Deer Creek rises southeast of Skellytown in eastern Carson County (at 35°28' N, 101°10' W) and flows north twenty-six miles to join the Canadian River in eastern Hutchinson County (at 35°52' N, 101°08' W). It runs through flat to rolling terrain with some steep slopes, where clay and sandy loams support cacti, brush, and grasses. The stream, once on Diamond Fqv ranges, gave its name to the White Deer Lands Company and the town of White Deer to the south. It drains the Skellytown oilfield and a vast ranching area.
