PANTHER CREEK (Bowie County). Panther Creek rises within the confines of Red River Army Depot two miles east of New Boston in central Bowie County (at 33°28' N, 94°21' W). The stream, intermittent in its upper reaches, flows in a northeasterly direction for five miles to its mouth on Barkman Creek, three miles northwest of Hooks (at 33°30' N, 94°19' W). The surrounding soils are loamy, and the area is heavily wooded, with post oak, blackjack oak, and elm trees predominating.
