Does anyone know if I can get rid of the smell from my boggy 1/2 acre. It is decidedly fecal in odour !

Hmmm....I'd suggest moving, haha. Seriously though - bogs are an important ecosystem that harbor many species. Not only would it be unethical to do anything to modify it, it would be against federal law as well (draining/modification of wetlands is a violation of the Clean Water Act).

You sure it isn't smelly due to a septic system?

It sounds to me like you might need to add some beneficial bacteria... it's the nature of a bog to have anaerobic layers, so find some that will work with or without oxygen...
