I found this behemoth in tall grass. I really need to know if it's venomous because I want nothing more than to hold this spider

Is it a wolf spider?

Hogna lenta (Wolf Spider)

Awwww. Just hold her lightly, she’s sensitive to physical pressure and the feeling of being trapped. Those are the things that can lead her to bite in self-defense. She has some venom for killing prey, it isn’t medically significant to most humans. Have fun!
