How am I supposed to defend myself against wolves

I want to do overnight camping (it's illegal here and the few forests are covered with trails but I've seen people do it, even in this densely populated shithole, so I'm willing to make that bet).
Only problem is that the wolf is back in this country (Netherlands) and I do not think I am able to defend myself against one, at least not without having to go to the hospital. I'm 6'4 and 210lbs but I still am not confident enough in being able to fight one. Is this a legitimate risk? What can I do to prevent encounters? What do I do when I encounter one? How can I defend myself during an attack?
People camp in bear or mountain lion country often enough so maybe I shouldn't even be so scared of these things, but if I'm camping alone under nothing but a tarp, I don't want to be their morning snack.

Otherwise just share stories about wolves or camping in the Netherlands/Germany/Belgium.

    Its much more likely you'll get torn open by a feral hog. Anyways, just learn to use a gun, crossbow, and hog spear. Confindence in the use of those weapons will teach you what you actually need when PrepHole.

      I have encountered wolves while camping near the czech boarder in germany. Having said that they really are your smallest concern, hogs are a much bigger problem like said and even then the chance, that one will actually charge you is miniscule, as long as you dont act like a complete retard. If you still feel the need to carry a weapon the most potent one that you can easily get your hands on would be a Saufeder (Boar Spear), if thats to bulky bring a Saufänger (Boar Knife), thats what i do. You propably wont escape unharmed, but you will kill the hog and propably get away with your life. Carry a proper trauma kit when in hog country. Even better: bring a gun. Most important of all: Dont act like a retard. Dont sneak through the forest, make noise, they will naturally try and stay away from the apex predator if they know where you are.

      that is also a concern I've heard of, but they are relatively tame here because humans are retarded and feed them. They can still weigh a shitton and I've seen videos of them chasing away wolves: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cy7y1uFLcM

      As for the guns, you will get arrested for having a replica gun that shoots blanks here. Crossbows equally illegal, hog spear, no idea, generally our law states that anything that can be used with the intent of harming another human is forbidden. Even in self defense situations, using anything other than a kitchen knife will probably land you in jail, they will probably even argue that your makeshift wooden spear should be counted as a deadly weapon.

      Tbh I didn't know going PrepHole in the Netherlands was even possible.

      It is, but it's hard, zoom in on all the red areas and you'll see there are paths which carve into every piece of forest. The most secluded areas will have you 400 yards away from the closest trail and they're relatively intensively used. Here's a channel with wildcamping video's in the Netherlands: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFUHIEUJVUM

      What was the wolves demeanor? Did they run away when they saw you? Or were they curious and stayed to look at you from a distance.

        it was at night and i woke up from the noise they made. Some howling, a very wierd kind of barking (similar to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=icDObrsrNr4) and the branches breaking beneath their feet. There were at least two aproximately 30-50m from my camp. and they moved in a half circle around me to get out of my way. Whole encounter took less then 5min. Seemed they wanted even less to do with me, then i with them.

          Yeah I figured that out as well recently, seen 50 caliber airguns that are completely legal too. Bit of a weird loophole in the law since firearms are illegal but I don't care.

          And one more thing, the chances of you running into a wolf are almost 0. I'm an ecology student in Wageningen so I'd love to see a wolf, I live close to areas where there are wolves and I regularly go for walks around those areas, and I have never run into a wolf. The closest thing I ever saw were tracks. I did see plenty of wild boar and deer, but never wolves.

          figured I'd ask on the off chance it would happen

        This anon is right, am a dutchman, one day I got so tired of eating potatoes I went hiding under a windmill in a tulip field, under the starry night I knocked a hiker out with my clog and cooked him on my camping stove with magic mushrooms from the grocery store on the side. If I've been doing that for years I imagine It's perfectly safe to come wild camping in the Netherlands as long as you don't get caught.

        Wel gotta be honest with you, most of what we have left is there for a reason, and it's generally not for the civvies to enjoy

        For instance most of the coastal patches are watter filtration, and under the guise of nature reserve the government gets cops to patrol the areas (Staatsbosbeheer boa's)
        And from what I remember form the military most of the Veluwe is pretty much the military's playground

        But i guess i should be happy, those 2 things preferent everything to be swallowed up buildings

        And i get to play hide and seek with the gov

            They don't patrol anywhere at night that isn't a popular tourist attraction, near a road or near a densely populated area. Thank god I live near that long, thin stretch of forest in the southeast (Maasduinen). I can camp whenever I want, just set up after sundown and don't bring anything reflective.
            Also, if any animals start making noise around your camp, just make a loud noise to spook them.

    Wolves don't usually bother humans, maybe cuz of size maybe cuz of racial memory and remembering getting fucked, who knows. If you do have to handle a wolf though it won't just be one.

    A wolf is not going to attack you. A pack of wolves might, but is still highly unlikely and at that point you’re not gonna be able to fight them. A flare or loud noise like a gunshot should be enough to spook them though

        or could just be me being out/ near the coast of the Netherlands, the foxes just start sitting beside me if im looking at the deer for wildlife pictures, if that's anything to go by i dont thing the wolves will be strollin in here like they own the place.

      Keep in mind that the great majority of Europe and Scandinavia had been without wolves (or any large predatory mammal) for many decades. They have no idea how to react to the return of the legendary apex predator, predecessor to our greatest animal ally.

    I'm from northern Germany and we have the same problem here. What I do is bring a bluetooth speaker with me and for the first night I stay awake and play sounds of sheep (there is a 10 hour version on youtube) while I hide and wait for wolves to show up. When they come I look out for the one that approaches the speaker first, he is the alpha wolf and the only one you should worry about. Once they are close I jump out, wrestle the alpha to the ground and than violenty rape him while keeping his head/neck under control. When he stops howling you know he has accepted you as the new alpha and you won't have to worry about wolves bothering you for the remainder of your stay.

    Wolves are harmless, if they smell, see or hear you they'll take off immediately. Some retarded photographers encircled a bunch of wolves recently and they didn't even get attacked.

    Also walking around with a spear, crossbow or gun here is illegal, so don't do any of that. You should be fine to camp, just clean your shit up after you, and if you want to camp legally, thanks to krautism if you go to germany and just use a tarp and hammock setup it's sort of legal.
