I was looking at the specs of a range finder for maximum range.  It listed 1000 yd for reflective, 650 yd for a tree, and 325 yd for a deer.  I can understand why a reflective target has the longest range, but what is it about a tree and a deer that causes such a large difference in usefull range?

leaves on the tree is more reflective, whereas the deer's coat absorbs

The hardest thing to range is a black cow.
