Notes:

My yard is filled with the volunteer vine shoots this spring. At first I thought they were a form of poison ivy, but now I don’t think so. Can you tell me what this is, if it’s poisonous, and how I can get rid of it? Thanks.

    The picture is fuzzy, which makes it harder to tell but I think you had it right. Poison ivy/oak. There’s a picture on this page of new growth that’s red and ‘especially shiny’ that looks like what you have there.
