Either get an impact on it or the old method. Take a punch and smack it hard in the center. I had to Smack the screws on my carb float bowl to get them out. Then throw that bolt away and get a magnetic drain plug.

You may have to helicoil repair the drain pan hole before you put the mag plug in. It is way to risky to be running through the woods with no oil and seizing up the entire engine. Make sure you do not have a stripped tapped hole.
