In lower light 1000 to 1400 maybe even further.
In mid day full light or sun 800 to 1000 consistently.
Conditions will cause different results. I have even had smoke from distant forest fires interfere. Fog, snow and rain are worse. But for an average you can count on 1000.
This is on flat ground with sand bags where there is nothing behind the animal. Stick that same deer on a hillside and you will get much longer readings but could be ranging dirt if you are not on sand bags.
