No leaves, no natural color left, no clean end grain. You like making it tough!

I see a pruned knot so it's a yard tree. Kinda white oak looking bark.  A nice fresh saw cut on the surface and the end grain would make it possible to id.

I think Mood and Mike are right about white oak. In the first pic down at 6:00 on the clock face, I see the stippling of the medullary rays.  A simple look at the end grain will confirm if this is correct.

I'll make a fresh saw cut this afternoon.  Doesn't smell like the other white oak I've been milling.

Everything I have to mill are yard trees that have been down for between 6 weeks to 12 months so no leaves on anything unfortunately.  Going forward, I want to be more careful about labeling and inventory.

So I never cut a fresh end, but the guy I got it from swears its hickory.  I need to cut a fresh end later today.

Still looks like WO. Definitely not hickory. 

The beaver that chewed that off needs to be taught how to make a smooth cut.  ;D

Looking at your first picture:
I'd say your sawing speed was steady and you have a blade that is missing some tooth points.

There have been a few Walnut trees that drop Hickory nuts, so not a surprise to find acorns under a Hickory.   Heck, I even had a customer whose oaks shed needles, but that story involves a Game Warden and the beginning of a search party.   :D
