HUNTER BRANCH. Hunter Branch rises two miles southeast of Freemound in southwestern Cooke County (at 33°32' N, 97°27' W) and runs south 1½ miles to its mouth on Clear Creek, three miles southeast of Freemound (at 33°31' N, 97°28' W). It traverses variable terrain, surfaced by shallow, stony clay loams that support oak, juniper, chaparral, cacti, and grasses. Hunter Branch was named for John and Joe Hunter, brothers whose property was on the creek.
