I think this might be a wolf spider, but want to know for sure. It was found this morning, on the outside of my house, in Belleville, MI. (I also found a smaller, but similar one in the basement last night.)

Any thoughts would be appreciated!

I cannot be 100% certain, but this certainly is more likely a wolf spider than anything else...

It looks like a wolf spider to me too, and I was just reading about them last night. It said they have eyeshine (their eyes reflect, light like a cats) so it looks like the spider in your pic has that going on.
