Douglas was raised in Whitsett where his love for ranching, hunting, and the outdoors began. He graduated from Southwest Texas State College in 1961 with a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics, and upon graduation enlisted in the Air Force and eventually reached the rank of Lt. Colonel. He served two tours as a pilot in the Vietnam War, and his service took him from Florida to Alaska. After retiring from his time in the Air Force, Douglas began his second career as a Quarter Horse trainer, which led him back to his love of ranching.
