RED DEER CREEK. Red Deer Creek rises at the breaks of the Llano Estacado northeast of Pampa in northern Gray County (at 35°33' N, 100°60' W) and flows northeast for thirty-five miles, across southeastern Roberts County through Miami, to its mouth on the Canadian River, near Canadian in western Hemphill County (at 35°56' N, 100°23' W). Robert Moody established his PO Ranch headquarters on Red Deer Creek, and the stream's upper waters were part of the Diamond F ranges. The area is flat with local shallow depressions; water-tolerant hardwoods, conifers, and grasses grow in clay and sandy loam soils.
