comment How to react to someone measuring distances?
Well, I don't think there's a way to narrow it further down to a stronger focus on archery. In my opinion, the way to go could be to give it a higher grade of abstraction (i.e. remove the archery specifics and describe the problem in general) and transfer the question to sports.SX...

OK, but there is some entity (typically the organisers) that has set the rules, have means to enforce them (exclude the unfair player from the competition in the worst case) and can be approached to complain to, right? This is a situation that is common in many activities in many competitions that are not ranked high enough that they have to or can provide referees for every aspect of the competition that could be subject to unfair play. Instead the players are expected to behave according to the rules in these aspects to ensure a fair competition.

I've given an answer, however, I'm tempted to vote for an off topic close. This is not specific to archery, not even to outdoor activities but basically it boils down to "How do I approach someone who is playing unfair by violating the written rules of a certain competition?"

Was this in a competition situation or at a random occasion? I.e. is it a situation where such a thing should be covered by written rules that are compulsory to every participant or is it just a matter of unwritten consent not to do so?

comment Twisting board technique when turning a snowboard?
@OddDeer This is in many cases the problem that a person with a certain skill tries to teach someone else. Since you often don't really know what you do exactly but do it by feeling, you try to explain what it has to feel like to be right. Especially with activities that require steering with your center of gravity (CoG), in many cases trying to do something with your arm or leg effectively results in a change of your CoG which is the actual thing you want. However, directly achieving this desired change in CoG is often much more complicated than thinking in such a "auxiliary" movement.

+1 for the last point. And angering the snow gods makes them punish the responsible person with various pests – one of them are avalanches ;-) .

comment Best method of carrying fruits over a period of 3 days while on a trek
It's interesting how fruits seem to differ in different parts of the world. Here in Central Europe, strawberries sometimes spoil within hours after you bought them while it is possible to store citrus fruits for weeks without a problem. Looks like this is either due to different conservation techniques or because their ripening state is different when they are harvested for the respective markets.
