As an addition to my suggestion that you use your EXISTING bow setup rather than buy a whole new rifle setup and learn it...

You can just add more distance to your practicing as well as shooting on uneven terrain uphill downhill and judging distance on the 3D course. Make it so making the shot is not even close to a question but a forgone conclusion once you have a bull in range at full draw with vitals visible. You will have your hands full with calling setting up, moving your setup, moving again, losing the bull and having him surprise you in a totally different position than you thought he was in.

Not to mention most of your effort will be simply FINDING ELK.

I've had the same debate with myself but I'm going to go rifle simply because my shooting is much better. Just hoping the weather cooperates.
