I agree with Qvist -- tough and stringy -- hickory was one of the first to come to mind. Still just a guess though.

My first guess is hickory. I'm terrible at judging by pic though. Did it smell like pig crap when u split it lol.

Being older and tough to split, bark does look like a type of hickory

Do a simple test, pick it up, is it heavy or light in weight? Hickory would have some heft to it. I still think it's Poplar or some lighter wood, also based on the picture of the cut ends of the unsplit pieces, that doesn't look like Hickory cut ends to me but I could be wrong.

It’s hard to tell. It’s not super heave or light. Doesn’t seem any lighter/heavier than any ash, oak, or maple I have on hand. But I do know one thing it will be burned next year or so lol.
