Comments & ID Thoughts

My initial reaction to seeing this spider was that it was a mouse. Then I realized it was a spider going up the side the bottom of our chicken coop. It is approximately 3 inches across. My best guess is it is an H. carolinensis, Carolina Wolf Spider. I would appreciate knowing if my guess it right.
