Any of you guys ever bump into one of these? Its called a whip scorpion and in some places a vinagron.
They are not poisonous but they are ugly as hell. I used to capture them and feed them all sorts of insects. They could tear up huge cockroaches in a second.

When I lived in Arizona we had a couple encounters with Wolf Spiders. The first time was a bit freaky for me personally since I was in the little swimming pool we had out back, so my glasses were off and I didn't have my contacts in, which usually means I'm freakin' blind. But the Wolf Spider was big enough that I could see the brownish-grey blur running across the pool deck.
The second one was even funnier. My girlfriend initially found it when she was housesitting for us. She warned us in advance, but we figured by the time we got home a week and a half later we'd never see hide nor hair of it. WRONG!
It was hanging out above the upstairs bathroom door (on the inside). Scared the bejeezues out of my little sister. Little sister runs to get mom. Mom runs back down to get me. I take one look at it and say "Heck no I'm not going after that thing."
So here comes Dad, who at the time was a Major in the US Army. In typical Dad fashion, he's rather skeptical of the true size of this spider. Now, you have to understand, I can count on both hands the number of times in my life I've heard my Dad cuss, particularly in front of my sister and I. He's just not that kinda guy.
So he gets upstairs, steps into the bathroom, turns around, looks up, and his eyes get real wide and he says: "Holy s**t that's a big spider!" He still managed to catch it with a little plastic jar. We kept it for a couple days then dumped it over the back fence outside.

I see wolf spiders in my house all the time. I smashed one and about a hundred tiny little babies jumped off its back. Freaky! I went on a smashing frenzy.

Where I live now we have the black and yellow garden spiders. Oddly enough I think those are pretty cool. The kids even like them and my daughter actually names them! This last summer we had three in the bushes under our kitchen window. My wife, who pulls into the garage by said window, would always take a headcount when she got home to make sure they were all there. Not because she likes them but because she wants to make sure they stay outside. She is allowing me to keep them around as long as they don't make an inside appearance.

Garden spiders don't bother me much (they are harmless and actually act as pest control for your garden). Crab spiders and Orb Weavers are nasty looking things but are also harmless and spin some of the most beautiful webs you'll ever see.

Oh! When you said wolf spider I was thinking of jumping spiders. I love jumping spiders, they're cute as hell. I'll never kill a jumping spider. They just sit there watching you, if you move left or right they'll turn along with you. I love those guys. Not sure if ever saw a wolf spider.
I had a huge writing spider (or it might've been a garden spider) on my front porch a few years ago. I took a few pictures of it. I think the wind blew it's web down so it moved on a few days later.
I love spiders! But I'll kill the dangerous ones. I had a crap load of black widows in my new shed last year. I put a bug bomb in there, they wouldn't die! They were messed up, not sure if they were dead or just had nerve damage,they were just laying there with their legs moving slowly. I like black widows,they look awesome, but I don't want them around multiplying.
Here's a tip, if you're afraid of spiders learn more about them. I was afraid of spiders when I was little but after I learned about them I wasn't afraid anymore.
