Found this little guy stuck to a sticky trap in our bedroom at the family cabin  (more than 3.5 inches in diameter). It still looked pretty healthy and only had two legs stuck so I helped it get loose outside.  I think it is some kind of wolf spider, but the eyes appear to be in two rows rather than three.   If you happen to know the exact species I would like to know.  I think this is only the second one I have ever seen.
