I will have to do some research on what to look for. We have a few acres of woods around us I wonder what there range is?

I thought of doing that I'm just a little worried I will be hurting any of the neighbors cats or dogs that happen to roam the property.... But I seem to be getting the same feed back that its hard to get them in the humane traps....
Nearly impossible to catch in the live traps. Warn the neighbors you are putting out leg traps. Then it's their responsibility to keep their animals off your property. My son had leg traps (just bar, no teeth) set all winter. He caught his own dog & my cat. His dog was out within a few minutes because I saw it happen. He was fine, no limp, nothing. My cat was stuck for several hours because she got caught at night & I didn't find her til morning. Nothing broken, but her foot was pretty swolen for about 24 hours. Within 48 hours she was walking on it normally. These traps aren't typically dtrong enough to break bones, but they hold pretty tight until you release them. My son forgets where he puts them all the time & ends up stepping in them himself. You just hear him griping while he pries it off his shoe.
