Answer: 
Yes! Douglas fir is very stable and quite suitable for exterior applications such as the one you're planning. The only soft woods that outperform Douglas fir in such applications are redwood and cedar. As with any other wood used outdoors, be sure to seal the cut-ends with high-quality exterior primer. All the best.

Answer: 
With it being untreated I wouldn't recommend putting it outdoors. You can buy 4x4x8 treated lumber available at Home Depot as well.
