HUNTING SHIRT CREEK. Hunting Shirt Creek rises a mile south of Carbon in south central Eastland County (at 32°16' N, 98°51' W) and runs south for eight miles to its mouth on the Sabana River, eight miles southwest of Gorman (at 32°11' N, 98°50' W). It traverses flat to rolling terrain with local escarpments, surfaced by deep to shallow sandy and clay loams that support hardwood trees, conifers, oak, juniper, mesquite, brush, cacti, and grasses.
