Aphonopelma species for sure, appears to be a nice big male. Perhaps Aphonopelma californicum/hentzi.

Thank you Gordon. I thought it was Aphonopelma but really wasn't sure. This is only my first live one found in the 20+ years of living in the area.

Denny, I just posted a link to a major revision of all the U.S. tarantulas in this forum. Check it out for all Nevada species including maps. http://zookeys.pensoft.net/articles.php?id=6264&display_type=element&element_type=7&element_id=0&element_name=Aphonopelma

based on the dichotomous key and range maps your specimen is Aphonopelma iodius
