POLECAT CREEK (Edwards County). Polecat Creek rises seven miles south of Rock Springs in east central Edwards County (at 29°55' N, 100°10' W) and runs southeast for nine miles to its mouth on Pulliam Creek (at 29°51' N, 100°07' W). It initially traverses flat terrain with local deep and dense dissection and shallow, stony soils that support oak, juniper, and mesquite. Later in its course the terrain changes to steep slopes and benches, with shallow clay loams.
