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.

I found some small nuts, sort of  pecan looking, thin hard shells, some small ends of branches sugesting it is some sort of hickory
