Two more deer have tested positive for chronic wasting disease in North Dakota. 

They were taken from Unit 3F2, which includes parts of Sioux, Grant, Morton, Hettinger and Adams counties. 

This is an area known to have CWD. 

Last week we told you a deer taken from Divide County tested positive for the disease. 

This is the first time in state history one was found in that area, Unit 3A1.

All together that makes three deer taken during the 2018 deer gun disease confirmed for CWD. 

Game and Fish says they have restrictions they put into place to combat the disease they say is the most serious threat to the future of big-game hunting in North Dakota. 

Since 2009, North Dakota has had 14 cases of chronic wasting disease.
