Comments & ID Thoughts
I didn't see any pictures that looked a lot like this. I'm leaning toward maybe the barn funnel spider or maybe an invasive tiger wolf spider. Found it on a wooden pallet that was sitting outside of a wooden shed.

Very docile I saw it while I was loading a pallet into my truck I grabbed a stick to transfer it from the pallet to the ground and it just wanted to stay on the pallet it didn’t back away deffensivly or attack the stick.
Hi. This is one of the nursery web spiders, Dolomedes species. Ones I have caught by hand just seem to sit on my hand. Never seen any aggression, but can be quick if spooked. A challenge to catch.
