Deputy Sheriff Ferguson best known as The Ferg is one of the main characters on the Longmire television series.
Young and inexperienced, Ferg was hired by Sheriff Walt Longmire as a favor to Ferg's father.
He has an unrequited crush on Cady Longmire. While investigating Cady's hit-and-run accident, Ferg held his gun on a suspect until he was talked down by Deputy Vic Moretti. The Ferg can sometimes be very emotional, he sniffled a little when Cady Longmire was hit by a car, and he broke down after finding Branch Connally's dead body
As a deputy sheriff, Ferg drives a 1979 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am (although sometimes he drives Branch's Dodge Charger at Sheriff Walt Longmire's request) and carries a Smith & Wesson Model 29 in .44 Magnum as his duty weapon.
