Bullard Creek rises in central Hall County (at 34°28' N, 100°39' W) and runs north five miles to its mouth on the Prairie Dog Town Fork of the Red River (at 34°32' N, 100°39' W). It was once part of the old Mill Iron Ranch range (see CONTINENTAL LAND AND CATTLE COMPANY). The stream passes through an area of moderately steep slopes with loamy soils in which grow mesquite and grasses. The area around the junction of the Red River, the Little Red River, and Bullard Creek was popular with ancient peoples from 7,000 years ago until historic times. There were once excellent springs on Bullard Creek.
