Yes, you could do this. However, the IR lights are fairly expensive. I don't know how often you will be wanting to use this setup but, IR Chemlights might be more cost effective. If you are in a fixed stand, place them on the opposite side of trees. This will keep them from creating too much light if a critter is directly inline. To further increase the throw, you can make a reflector out of tinfoil and put that behind each Chemlight. Again, IR beacons will work, just cost more. The IR chem's allow you to cover more area.
