It is. :-)

Maybe like this:
# Device Mountpoint FStype Options Dump Pass
# --------- ------------- --------- ---------- ---------
/dev/da0 /mnt ufs rw 2 2
The mount point (directory /mnt in this example) has to be +w
for wheel, e. g.
# chown root:wheel /mnt
# chmod u=rwx,g=rwx,o=rx /mnt
# mount /mnt
That should be _nearly_ the default (FreeBSD/x86 8.2-STABLE here):
drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel 512 Feb 18 2011 mnt/
This is where you could use
# chmod g+w /mnt
to allow writes for members of the wheel group.
You may apply further restrictions (e. g. -rx for others) if needed),
and maybe "noauto" on the options field.
For mounting in general: The user issuing the mount command has
to have proper access to the device file (/dev/da0 in this example)
_and_ the target directory.
See "man mount" and "man fstab" for details.
