The best option is duke dog proof traps, bait with large marsh mallows (spear one with the trigger) and strawberry jelly. Cats won't touch a dogproof baited with sweet bait. To catch coons you need to set the traps right on their line of travel. Stake it down well. I paint my dp's white for private land (easy to spot) and olive drab for public land.
