Thinking about getting a new rig for turkey

I'm thinking about getting after the turkeys this spring, and am already looking for a new bow to replace my PSE Dakota. I don't have much money to spend ($300 max.) and was wondering what entry- and mid-level bows are available in this range.
I'm looking for something that would work for turkey and deer, so I guess it would need to shoot pretty flat but be in light enough for the long full-draw waiting time on turkeys.
What company and model should I be focusing on?
I can't afford the high-end stuff :( , but want good performance. Thanks for any advice

Use lower poundage for the turkeys. Use lighter arrows to keep the speed up. Penetration shouldn't be an issue on turkeys. Crank up the poundage for deer while using a heavier arrow. I don't know what your max shooting poundage is but I'd get a bow that you'll set close to it's max for deer. Then take a couple turns off it for turkeys.

The 2 cam bows will give you more speed which you may want when the poundage is turned down for turkeys.
