Definitely not poison oak, ivy, or sumac, but I'm not sure what it is. I keep thinking it may be some kind of wild grape, but I can't see any tendrils. Did you notice what method of climbing it uses (tendrils, twining, areal roots)?

It looks like a grape vine to me.

Tendrils makes me think grape too. Not what I'd call invasive, but I do have them pop up here and there, and they are difficult to dig out. They can get quite large too.

OMG grapes.
I have them all over both fence lines, sprouting from the neighbors' ground.
NOBODY is cultivating/harvesting - they're from someone a long time ago.
I have to cut them back 3-4 times per season or they reach into my yard and grab my birdfeeders, buddleia, and anything else they can get their tendrils around.
Decisions, decisions.
I tried a couple of usernames and have finally settled on:

crittergarden.

That's it, no more changes. I'm done. I will be crittergarden here, on Cubits, and when I renew my Dave's Garden subscription on Noveber 4, I'll be crittergarden over there, too. DONE!~~~ UNTIL ONE HAS LOVED AN ANIMAL, PART OF THEIR SOUL REMAINS UNAWAKENED ~~~

I agree, it looks to be some variety of Vitis (Grape) ... there are probably a few types that grow wild in Texas.
