BULLSHEAD CREEK. Bullshead (Bullhead) Creek rises two miles southwest of Skidmore in southwestern Bee County (at 28°14' N, 97°45' W) and runs southeast for ten miles to its mouth on Papalote Creek, a mile south of Papalote (at 28°10' N, 97°36' W). It crosses flat to rolling terrain with clay loam and sandy loam soils that support water-tolerant hardwoods and grasses.
