BUCK BRANCH (Montague County). Buck Branch rises just west of St. Jo in eastern Montague County (at 33°41' N, 97°34' W) and runs east for 3½ miles to its mouth on the Elm Fork of the Trinity River, south of St. Jo (at 33°41' N, 97°31' W). It crosses flat to rolling terrain surfaced by deep, very fine sandy loams that support brush and grasses. The Buck Branch area has been used primarily as rangeland.
