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.

A bow with that light a draw weight might not be good for hunting even small game but it can be done. Those bows are generally for target shooting and are made as recurve and long bow styles.

Some nice stuff here: Bows-3Rivers Archery Equipment, Traditional Youth Archery Bows and Arrows, and Long Bow Hunting

check your state's hunting regs. most states that allow bow hunting have restrictions on poundage and style of bows for hunting even small game.
