    Looks quite a lot like a wolf spider to me (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wolf_spider)

    I guess I should have searched...

    https://spiderid.com/spider/agelenid...tigena/atrica/

    `still uncertain as to what it is - but it's narrowing down (or could be pinned by the suggestions).

    I hoped I would get a shot of the funnel spider to compare, but the "homeowner" ran to the bottom of the web when I got there. Nice specimen of the web though. This is in the natural area of my back yard where there are several of these scattered about. I would much rather deal with a couple of these in the yard than the second shot, he was on my back porch at one point. All stretched out, about 3 feet, still have the rattles.

    Well, if you want to know what type it is, I believe it is a Funnel.

    If it is around me, it is, DEAD.

    I think the other guys correctly identified your spider. Saw a story today that seemed relevant, nonetheless.

    There are really only two types of spiders that you need to worry about in Colorado, the black widow and the brown recluse.
    There are some reports of brown recluse spiders, but those are really minimal, theyre not confirmed very often, Murphy said.

    CSU is the go to place for info on insects here, especially Dr. Cranshaw.

    http://extension.colostate.edu/topic...he-home-5-512/

    My wife is a Master Gardener and took classes from Dr. Cranshaw. He said hes never seen an established brown recluse population in Colorado because of the climate. A few come in on pallets and such but dont survive the winter. If anyone really does find them living here they should call him as hed be eager to verify it.
