Re: 3-Season or 4-Season Tent?

I have both 3 season and 4 season tents. If I'm in snow country, I'll always take the 4 season. Never skimp on shelter in the high country. Once was "trapped" in my tent during an early season elk hunt by an ice/sleet storm. Couldn't walk 10 feet without falling. The layer of ice on the rainfly needed a little help every few hours to reduce the weight. Had to wait until the next day to start the hunt.

Re: 3-Season or 4-Season Tent?

I am going to try one of the GoLite ShangriLa Tipis this year. Not really a specific 3 or 4 season but it should keep the rain and snow off. I keep reading great feedback on the tipi style tents and this was a bargain so I am going to give it a go. I will probably add a stove boot if I buy an ultralight Ti stove to the set up.

Check out the Cabels XPG ultralite tent. Its gotten great reviews, and while it's a 3 season tent (they have 4 season versions), most people say it works like a 4 season.

Last year during 2nd rifle here (mid October), I was dying from the heat! I pack a really warm bag, and a nice pad.
If you like your hunting rifle, you can keep your hunting rifle.
