Subject: Wolf spider?

We see spiders here all the time in the woods of Northern New England. I am guessing this is a wolf spider that looks like it was successful in getting supper. He was on our screen door outside. Curious if I am correct and thought it would make a cool picture. He is not camera shy or timid.
This is the second image of a Nursery Web Spider, Pisaurina mira, we are posting today. Nursery Web Spiders do not build a web to snare prey. They hunt without webs. The female constructs a web to act as a nursery for her spiderlings once she locates an appropriate location to house the egg case she carries with her.
