Keith you are right in that u do need to move it around, however if its mating season the decoys are just as likely to attract then chase off.. lol. The fishing line for us around here works the best. Scarecrow's are good but i hate them cause i always forget there is one and i get nailed everytime lol.. i have more problems with mink than herons though.. now they are a pain n the butt

As as DIY here, I found the best way to get them to stay away was A) BB gun and B) hang deer fencing from trees with artificial frogs in the mesh.
Apparently Herons prefer frogs to fish.
I've caught about 6 Heron this way....it's a little barbaric, as my wife says, but my neighbour likes them for what I don't know
