Confused Reddish vine aggressive tendrils

Doesn't look like position ivy but I can't figure out what it is. Lives in chain link fence on property.

Looks like wild grape vines. Possibly Vitis mustangensis. I'm not sure of your location but if you're in Arlington, TX, that's probably what you have. Smiling

Arlington VA not Tx

Thought it might be a wild grape. But the leaf was throwing me off.

Welcome! It looks like an Ampelopsis, a grape relative:

Welcome! Okay. It could be a wild grape. There's another wild vine called Porcelainberry you can take a look at for comparison.

It reminds me of Fox Grape (Vitis labrusca)

Yes, it is the same. I think the pics on the Google images link show it better than the few in the database as far as the ID plant is concerned.

Thanks you all. Really appreciate the help. I knew it was poison ivy! I tip my hat to you.
