About four miles to the west and south we found an ideal hunters campwith plenty of fresh water, good grass and wood in abundance. Here we made headquarters until April.we were west of the 100th Meridian and in full view of Kiowa Peak to our east and Double Mountains to the west. There were buffalo, antelope, deer, and as one of the party remarked, turkey until further orders.
Such were the words of John R. Cook, buffalo hunter turned author, when describing a campsite in 1875 after entering into what is now Stonewall County, in the Texas Rolling Plains. Although his campsite was situated some north of present day Aspermont, his hunting forays ranged far and wide throughout the region, reaching as far as the Double Mountain Fork of the Brazos to the south, and miles to the west.
