FreeBSD 8.2-RELEASE FreeBSD 8.2-RELEASE #0: Thu Feb 17 02:41:51 UTC 2011     root at  amd64
+Have set the local rules for devfs
add path 'da*' mode 0660 group operator
add path 'fuse*' mode 666

+on /etc/rc.conf
+have set vfs.usermount=1 and runned the command
sysctl vfs.usermount=1

/dev/da4s1 has 0666 permissions as does mount_fusefs and the mounting point.

inserted on fstab

/dev/da4s1              /media/Story    ntfs rw,mountprog=/usr/local/bin/ntfs-3g,late 0 0

when trying to mount
$ mount  /media/Story
mount_fusefs: /dev/fuse0 on /media/Story: Operation not permitted
fuse: failed to mount file system: No such file or directory

this is the permissions of the device 
crw-rw-rw-  1 root  storage    0,  92 Dec  4 20:50 /dev/fuse0

lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  28 Dec  4 03:44 /usr/sbin/mount_fusefs -> /usr/local/sbin/mount_fusefs
here is the ktrace:
