Doing some shed clean out and re arranging the last few weeks. Moved some things that hadn't been moved for years and found a couple surprises.

This big ole boy was the smaller one that allowed me to get close and take a couple photos before running off. The earlier spider was a good 1/2" or more in size by memory.

That thing would easily fill up your hand palm. Just thought I would share.

Its body was as wide as my finger. That tape measure is 1/2" wide. Never saw a spider that large except on national geographic in the rain forest.

I bet that bite would smart a little. I would think something of that size could kill a small mouse if he wanted. Lots of mice and snakes in that shed.

It's better to have spiders like that than insects, llike dermestid beetles, that would eat your furs.

Wolf spider

Came face to face with one about 12' up a tree trying to get in my tree stand. Told it I would make a deal, don't jump on me or mess with me and I won't mess with you or stomp you.

We got along real good until it got cold enough it disappeared.

I grabbed one of those suckers today on accident. I'm not someone that's normally scared of spiders, but when you unexpectedly grab one that big you instinctually do some fancy dancing, lol.

Lots of wolf spiders here. They make an interesting web with a funnel they go in and hide.

I draw the line in the house! All spiders in the house are dead meat, outside I leave them alone! Only thing that bothers me is in the fall, walking into their webs. Get a face full every once in awhile. I still leave them alone, they will rebuild their web! lol
