No, it is not hickory. 100% sure that it is oak. The prominence and width of the medullary rays (those steaks that are perpendicular to the growth rings) are characteristic of the oaks. The rays in hickory are barely visible to the naked eye, and even then, you have to look very very closely to see them at all.

So, the end grain pic is oak. Cannot really say about the first few pics. Not much to go on. An end grain shot of one of those boards would help a lot.
