Antelope Creek (Briscoe County)

General Entry

Antelope Creek rises east of Silverton in east central Briscoe County (at 34°32' N, 100°59' W) and flows northeast for seven miles to its mouth on the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River in Hall County (at 34°38' N, 100°56' W). The surrounding area, once a part of the Shoe Bar Ranch, is now the site of Antelope Flat, a sparse ranching community. The creek crosses an area of flat to gently sloping terrain and shallow to moderately deep soils over limy earth. The vegetation consists mainly of mesquite and grasses.

The following, adapted from the Chicago Manual of Style, 15th edition, is the preferred citation for this entry.
