WILDCAT DRAW. Wildcat Draw rises seven miles southwest of Dumont in northeast Dickens County (at 33°44' N, 100°34' W) and flows northeast for three miles before joining Shinnery Draw four miles southwest of Dumont (at 33°45' N, 100°33' W). The intermittent stream originates at an elevation of 2,330 feet and flows through remote ranchland, dropping almost 200 feet along its course. It passes through moderately sloping terrain where silt loams support grasses and mesquite.
