long bows and re curve's are great bows but I've never shot one in 25 pounds, I think you would be better off with a compound that you can easily get in 25 pounds and you can always up the weight on them, the sights are easy to use, you can mount tons of things on them plus even with a 25 pound pull you can kill turkey and even deer at certain ranges.
