Hunting for elk

Just another "what bow should I buy" question. Im in Idaho and I've received my disabled veteran hunting license which means I can use a crossbow during archery elk season. Id like to get an RTH package if crossbows come that way. I have experience with bear, Mathews, and Hoyt regular compound bows but no experience at all with crossbows. I read a lot of contradicting reviews on what's available at Cabelas. Im looking for something that's reliable but wont break the bank. id like to keep it under 1000$ for the bow package. Also some advice for bow speed and total arrow weight including broad heads and knock for elk hunting, whether I should go compound or recurve, etc.

Look in the classified section......a great bow if you can find one is an R10....Ravin 10. Lot's of horsepower in these bows....came in over spec I think 408 fps for me with a 400 gr bolt and that is a lot of juice headed downrange.
