I live in a wooded area (central St Louis County MN)...and I have these vines in abundance. Most of the time they are growing in a thick mass. I chose this picture because it is easy to see the detail of the 6 leaf configuration. Anyone know what it is?...or where I can find out what it is?

I would guess that's some kind of bedstraw (Galium). Do the plants cling to clothes when you put a sprig of it in contact? I think some, at least, are medicinal.

Some type of Galium

Perhaps sweet woodruff, bedstraw,?

Thank you, Alder and Linda. I think you are correct about it being some type of bedstraw (Galium). I've done some checking and it looks like it might possibly be Stiff Marsh Bedstraw or White Bedstaw. I have never seen them with flowers, so I'll have to watch to try to determine for sure what type it is.
 
Villains always have antidotes. They're funny that way. Here's an antidote disquised as a tiny ad:
