Since Douglas Fir is not technically a fir but is actually of the spruce family it would work. It's probably the second best wood to use for masts but it is a distant second to Sitka Spruce. If I'm building a mast to last another 35 years or so the cost difference is not that great.

Check out this link on Craig's list for Sitka Spruce. Looks like a great deal. $108 for 24' long 1x8's.
