Description:

These are two different spiders on separate sand banks of the same small river (Black Creek, MS). Their coloration and patterning seem really well adapted to sand.

Notes:

Anyone know what this is?

This is definitely a Wolf Spider. You can tell by the eyes. I believe it looks very similar to this species:

Based on the eyes fangs and leg length it is most likely a species of wolf spider.

I would guess a Huntsman or a Fishing Spider by your locale.
