How to judge "500 Ft" Distances

In the Alagash, in Maine, there's a whole lot of "nothin" this question is mute.

However, here in CT, we are required to stay 500 Ft away from any structure (generally speaking; since some variances apply when talking about distance requirements, for populated buildings -vs- other types of structures; so relatively speaking, staying at least 500 Ft away from any structure is a safe rule of thumb I suppose), when firing our weapons when hunting.

That said, is there a good way to estimate (for known structures anyway) 500 Feet? I don't own a golfer's (or hunter's) distance estimating tool (which I suppose means that I should consider buying one) and want to be able to do a visual measurement that is reasonably easy to do.
