Wolf would be my guess. Been seeing plenty of them.

My guess is a wolf also. Biggest one I've ever seen was in a hole in a tree when I was walking to a tree stand. I almost turned around and went back to the truck.

Wolf. Not poisonous, but the bite will hurt. Not aggressive. Like hanging out in wood bundles, piles of junk in garages, etc. Very big and intimidating, but not aggressive.

The best kind catches all the irritating gnats, flies, mosquitoes etc.

That's a "2,000" spider.

The name is derived by the number of miles you run after seeing one.

They're also sometimes referred to as a "I-shitta-my-pants" spider.

I would not get too close whatever it is. It still has one good leg evidently ;-)

Looks like it might be a huntsman spider.
