Any recommendations of a 3 season or four season tent for late season hunting ?
Get a sturdy pyramid tent.
One of these:
Hapi DCF-B - LOCUS GEAR
These tents are strong enough to withstand heavy weather like a 4 season tent, but are lighter than a typical 3 season tent. Tents like these are all I use for hunting these days, in any season.
I've been using the Terra Nova Blizzard 2 for the last two years. Very nice 4 season tent that won't break the bank ( $350 to 375.00 range).

Fast setup and take down and packs down nicely.
Buy once. Cry once. Get a hilleberg.
I use the North Face VE-25 (3 person) for all of the extreme winter conditions and it works great during heavy winters.
Becker's Terra Nova Blizzard is very nice and well designed.
I have a Tarptent Scarp 2 double wall, silnylon tent but I had to modify with under-the-fly crossing poles it for winter use (high winds and snow load). I even bought a heavy duty main hoop pole for it.
