I'm getting eaten alive in my backyard!

Anyone know what this bug is, and if so, does it bite and leave one itchy??

The picture you sent is a fly. It may or may not be the culprit, depending upon the quantity and location of the bites. If you are getting large quantities of ankle and foot bites while in the yard, it is likely midges (also a fly) or fleas.
