Question Attaching a gate to buck and rail?

I am in the midst of saving up for enough posts to make a round pen using buck and rails. The problem is, I am at a loss of how to attach a gate, since the bucks are angled.
Has anyone ever constructed this type of fence and attached a gate? Any ideas out there?

You put in two poles in ground right against the fence, 8+in diameter. Hang the gate on one of them.
I've never seen it done any other way.

Yeah, I figured that would be the only way. Just trying to figure out if there is any other option. Perhaps making a sliding gate? I'm still doing a lot of drawings.

I think any other way would be too costly, real tricky to install or be easily weakened. =(

Why not just use a panel bow gate? You'd have to figure out how to secure the bottom or just go with rails that slide (cheapest and most conforming)

carpentry, fencing, round pen
