Pepper spray - keep animals at bay in emergency situations
Encounters with aggressive wild animals on the hunt or when hiking:: animals tend to unpredictable behaviour. It it therefore advisable to have a suitable deterrent ready at hand. Our pepper spray is meant for self-defence, whenever you find yourself in an emergency situation. Our effecitve irritants for animal repulsion comes in different types as you can see further below.
What is pepper spray and how does it work?
Peppe rsprays contain the active substance Oleoresin Capsicum. This substance is garnered from the pulp of hot chili pods and
causes strong irritations. The irritant is concentrated in an easy-to-use spray. When spraying aim at the eyes and nose of the aggressor so that its muuuous membranes will swell making the aggressor close its stinging eyes. If the aggressor breathes in the irritant, this can lead to coughs and shortness of breath. In short: your aggressor is immediately incapacitated giving you precious time in which you can make your flight. However, be careful with strong animals. Make sure that that the spray mist or spray jet is not being deflected in your direction.

Find the right pepper spray
In our shiop you will find pepper sprays of different spraying types:
- pepper sprays emitting a spraying mist
- pepper sprays emitting a spraying jet
- pepper spray gels
If you have no experience in handling pepper sprays,deterrents with spraying mist are a good choice. This does not require pinpointed spraying, however the reach is somewhat limited and the spray mist could be wafted off by wind.
By comparison, there are pepper sprays with a ballistic ejection of the spray. These score with thier reach of up to 5 m and are quite stable in wind conditionsl. Pepper gels, on the other hand, are viscous and will adhere on the targeted animal. This however presupposes accurate pointing.
Please note that in Germany peppersprays are approved only for defence against animals.
