It looks like it may be a wolf spider but it is difficult to ID without shots of its eye arrangement. Regardless, it is not a Brown Recluse or Black Widow which are the two deadly spiders of Indiana. Please be advise that all spiders venom is technically poisonous that may deliver a painful bite but the two mentioned above require medical assistance.
