Came from south central Oklahoma - presumably grew naturally.

The guy that brought it in said it had nuts on it.  He was pretty certain they were walnuts, but this doesn't look like any walnut I've seen.

Thanks!  I see a lot of Pecan but this is the first Hickory I've cut.  Guess the nuts look similar enough to walnuts when they're in the husk.

Walnuts have a husk on them that does not split and release the nut.  It has to be rubbed/worn off.  The botanical term for this characteristic is an indehiscent involucre (a covering which does not split).   Hickory (and pecan which is a hickory) have nut husks that split at lines of suture (dehiscent) and open up and release the nut.  Hickory is in the walnut family so they are related.  Hickory gets confused a lot with walnut.  But, the bark is different, the leaves are different, and the fruit is different.  Just because a tree produces a nut does not make it a walnut :).
