Breaking my own rules

Wow! I never thought I would be in a situation that I would not only be considering, but contemplating on breaking my own hunt rules. every year I go into the field with the goal of harvesting meat. I buy 2 combo tags each season. (a combo tag is 1 either sex deer and 1 antlerless deer.) (in Illinois, we are allowed to harvest only 2 antlered per per season).the second combo tag is an insurance tag that allows me to shoot a spike and the 14 pointer that follows 50yds behind him. with the rut still 4 weeks away and the high probability of seeing and or shooting a really phenomenal buck and only one more either sex tag left, I find my self in the precarious situation of possibly letting a lesser buck pass. This has never happened before.
