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).

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.
I purchased a seek outside cimarron and a lite outdoors stove last spring. Ive used it now in pa, va, and md over this fall. When it gets cold or the chance of ugly weather is In the forcast the stove only weighs 2lbs and you stay plenty comfortable. Just my recent experiance
