About Neal and Brownlee
Jeff C Neal
Jeff Neal was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but was not born into a hunting family. Jeff grew up with a love for the outdoors and learned about hunting big game both at home and abroad through visiting a local outdoor store as a boy. Jeff went on his first big game hunt, an Alaskan Brown Bear, at the age of 18 and was immediately hooked. In an attempt to get back to Alaska for another hunt, Jeff booked some clients to go with the outfitter he hunted with, basically starting a business by accident. When he was in his early 20’s, Jeff moved to Wyoming and continued arranging hunting trips for a growing client base and kicked-off his quest to take all of the North American big game animals into high gear.
Jeff became the youngest hunter to ever complete taking all of the North American big game animals when he was just 27 years old, which included Polar Bear and Jaguar at the time. He went on to complete the African 29, the Big 5, the Spiral Horns of Africa just to name a few, and has big game hunted on 5 continents. Starting with just an Alaskan Brown Bear hunt, Neal and Brownlee, LLC now arranges big game hunts on 6 continents.
It was through personal experience, both good and not so good, that he found the quality hunts that he represents today. Jeff has hunted with most of the outfitters his company represents, and is undoubtedly one of the most experienced booking agents in the industry, logging well over 100 international hunting trips to date. Jeff lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma where his agency is located and continues to seek out new areas and countries for his clients to hunt.
Greg Brownlee was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma and, like most young hunters who grew up in the United States, began hunting Whitetail Deer with his father at a young age. Greg’s love for the outdoors continued to grow throughout his childhood and his hunting ventures began taking him further and further from home. Meeting Jeff Neal through his father at a young age further fueled Greg’s desire to hunt big game internationally, and when Greg graduated from Oklahoma State University with a Bachelors in Management and Marketing he joined Jeff’s staff full time.
Beginning his international hunting career in Namibia with a plains game hunt, Greg has since traveled to 5 countries in southern Africa, hunted Argali, Markhor and Ibex in Asia and hunted multiple states in the Lower 48 and Alaska. A relative “youngster” in the industry, his attention to detail and aspirations to continue to offer the finest hunts in the world is what sets him apart from competition. Greg has worked with Jeff since 2007 and became part owner and Vice President of the newly re-branded “Neal and Brownlee, LLC” in 2015.
Trey Sperring was raised in Houston, Texas where he picked up a palpable passion for hunting at a young age by hunting Whitetails with his father and brother on their family ranch. Trey excelled in sports, eventually playing baseball collegiately for the University of Oklahoma. After college, Trey got his start in the professional world by moving back to Houston and getting a job in the energy sector where he excelled, though his passion was always rooted in the outdoors. Trey started his relationship with Jeff and Greg as a client, hunting regularly with them in the west for Mule Deer and Whitetails. As Jeff and Greg gained more insight into Trey’s life, they were impressed with his work ethic and knowledge of big game hunting so hired him as a consultant in August 2015. Trey’s attention to detail and organization skills are unmatched, and his knowledge of hunting the United States and abroad is expanding constantly. Trey married his wife, Charla, in April 2016 and lives in Denver, Colorado.
Starting in 1975, Jeff Neal was only offering hunts in North America. Now 42 years later, Neal and Brownlee, LLC offers hunts across six continents and 100 destinations.

Thanks to Jeff Neal, Greg Brownlee, and the outfitter! This area was absolutely thick with cats as we saw two Cheetah the day before this one was taken and the bunch after. We also saw very fresh Leopard tracks in some riverbeds and along the roads. The conservancy is also a plains game paradise and the outfitter is absolutely top shelf. I can’t wait to go back. Thanks again!
In a world where the customer experience is secondary to profit and often absent from many hunting organizations, it is refreshing to see how Neal and Brownlee, LLC brings it back to the fundamentals of making it easy to do business. I have used N&B for many hunts over the last few years with 100% success rate… I was even able to harvest some great trophies! The detail and attention that goes into to preparing me for a hunt continues to exceed my expectations and I have no doubt that N&B will be my guide in achieving many items on the “bucket list”. Thank you, Trey, Greg and Jeff for effectively converting a hunt into a life experience.
Best guided fishing trip I have ever been on.
Trey made sure we had all of our questions answered and followed up to make sure everything was going well. The outfitter was an exceptional guide, very knowledgeable, accommodating, and patient.
After my finishing my first hunt with Neal & Brownlee, LLC I was already thinking about what hunt would be next with them on the drive home. I was incredibly pleased with the wealth of information Trey provided to me for any hunt I could think of. Incredible customer service and they put the hunter in a great position to succeed. Looking forward to many years ahead hunting with them!
I had used a hunting consultant only one other time to book my hunts in the past, and that experience left a very bad taste in my mouth. I must say this was a 180 degree difference. I was provided a wealth of information, invited to call the outfitter, updated on changes in travel rules and restrictions that provided headaches for many hunters in the same place I was hunting, and debriefed on my return so any problems (if any) could be corrected/avoided in the future. I look forward to continuing this relationship with Neal and Brownlee.
Having hunted through Neal and Brownlee, LLC. for over 30 years, I can honestly say that I’ve never had an unsatisfactory experience. They pull out all the stops to make certain that the hunting experience itself works as expected. Their pre-hunt preparation is impeccable and they have always been helpful should unexpected complications occur during or after the hunt. They are simply the best.
I have known Jeff for 20 years as a friend and hunting consultant. I booked my first African trip myself because I thought I knew a lot about hunting. After that experience, I have booked my hunts with Jeff. He is THE expert in his field. If he does not know an area or an outfit, he will not sell you that hunt or even recommend it. I trust Jeff for his advice and his help fitting the best hunt possible to my hopes, dreams and expectations. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
For many years I had been researching hunts and doing them on my own. A few years ago I had decided to fulfill some of my life long hunting dreams. As the hunts got more remote and expensive, I knew I needed to choose hunts wisely in order to maximize my limited time away from work. Trey made this process easy as Neal and Brownlee has done the upfront work that used to take me months. I now look to Trey as my trusted hunting advisor to make some of my hunting dreams come true.
Having spent most of my life on self-guided hunts near the places I lived, I had always dreamed of hunting other species in terrain I was unfamiliar with. Having researched the internet on hunts around North America, the greatest challenge was finding an outfitter and guide you could trust, and the task was daunting. My good fortune of meeting the team at Neal and Brownlee came through the recommendation of a friend and fellow enthusiast who shared, “You won’t only have an agent getting you set up on world-class hunts but you will also have a partner that shares your passion for the hunt and becomes a friend for life.” The team at Neal and Brownlee not only focuses on the customer experience when selecting which hunt is right for you, but they ensure the customer experience is second-to-none, all the way to getting your trophy back home, no detail is missed. Thank you Trey, Greg and Jeff for making it easy for me to take that step outside of those familiar grounds I hunt at home and exploring the rest of what this great sport provides. If you are looking for an agency that believes providing a world-class hunt isn’t complete without world-class customer service, then this is the team for you. I look forward to many more incredible trips pursuing my passion, and sleep well knowing my friends at Neal and Brownlee will be right there to ensure every step of each trip goes perfect.
I came as a client and left as a friend. Neal and Brownlee’s passion for hunting is second only to their love of client satisfaction. From the instance I booked the hunt I was impressed with the level of detail and personal attention I received. The open communication, the hunt prep, the premier property, and the ridiculously over qualified guides resulted in the single most valuable hunting experience I have had. I am happy to call the people I met on my trip to New Mexico friends. Neal and Brownlee have indelibly removed the anxiety of choosing the “right” consultants. I look forward to many more hunts with these guys. PS – I was blessed with a BOMBER bear. Icing on the cake.
My original hunt with Neal and Brownlee, LLC. was my first of what is now five trips to Africa. It just seems for the best of Africa and what it has to offer a trophy hunter, Jeff and Greg do the best job of personalizing the hunt and maximizing your chances of success. I have had many more triumphs than failures with them…That is quality through and through.
Being the first trip to Africa for my Dad and I, we were not sure what to expect on this adventure. We now reminisce about the trip and are incredibly thankful we were to be introduced to Trey and the Neal and Brownlee team! The experience was completely personalized, stress-free, and was truly a “Trip of a Lifetime” for us! We took home some amazing animals and incredible memories. Looking forward to many more hunts with you guys in the future!
My recent Mule Deer hunt was a phenomenal experience. Fantastic accommodations, professional staff, and thoroughly organized. To top it off, I took a wonderful Muley. I would be remiss to stop here. This hunt was the product of over a year of planning.
Trey Sperring and the Neal and Brownlee folks kept a consistent communication line after the initial booking and were a wealth of knowledge about the area, gear recommendations, travel requirements, hunt preparations, etc. They truly understand customer service. No surprises here. Thoroughly satisfied.
Neal and Brownlee’s customer service really shined throughout the entire process.
The Alaskan fishing trip we booked through them was non-stop fun for five full days.
Didn’t want to come home!
I highly recommend Neal and Brownlee to everyone looking for an unforgettable experience.
A big thanks to Trey and the team at Neal and Brownlee. I recently had great success on my first hunt with the company. I knew that Neal and Brownlee was a top notch company prior to my hunt, however, my expectations were blown away due to the professional service and attention to detail. There’s not a question or detail that Trey could not answer for me. I can’t wait for my upcoming first Africa safari with Neal and Brownlee.
