The type of woods makes a difference, too. Some areas are so thick you may as well fix bayonets, but in old growth hardwood timber, there often isn't much underbrush. Mature stands of oak and hickory form a canopy that blocks enough sunlight to keep the forest floor somewhat unobstructed, so it's pretty common to see things well over 100 yards away in those.
Funny you mention that. Where I hunt I can see across a field to my right (though its 230 yards to the road and beyond that it is back to woods). To my left and to some degree in front of me is somewhat open woods to a creek (and a high bank that I am not going to shoot up to the top of across) but it closes in after about 20 yards in front of me to stuff that you can crawl through on the deer trails if you are forced to.
