Wolf Spider, yes
I'm not going to attempt to ID this one any further than 'male Lycosid'. But I wanted to comment on LEG I on the left side in this photo. It is much different than the other legs. I have heard that spiders can re-grow legs if they are immature enough to regenerate it. Is that perhaps what a re-grown leg looks like? Or am I totally off-base? I don't really know much about the subject of regeneration. I've always wanted to see it though! :)

 
Odd Leg
Yes, I noticed that odd front-left leg. My guess was also that it was regrown.

 
Forum discussion
I was just thinking that I should have asked your permission to include a link to your image in a forum topic that I recently posted. Please let me know if you'd rather I take it off (although I really hope you'll let me leave it, pretty please). Here's a link to what I am referring to: Spider Leg Regeneration
