I had the same problem removing my prop in the winter.

I finally needed to use the combination of a suitable prop puller (I needed to modify it so that it didn't damage the prop hub), penetrating oil (PB Blaster in this case), and heat from a propane torch.

I had no luck with any subset of the above and was convinced that it was not coming off. With the above it came right off.
