With all of the cat faces I'd say it is a Firewood tree.

hickory, walnut, ash and cottonwood all share that wire mesh bark pattern.  Structurally it doesnt look like hickory to me and im not fluent in those others. 

Look for nuts on the ground.  Native wolf might know.

I have seen box elder bark that looks like that, too.  Need a close up pic of the twigs and buds.
