Cut an X in it with a dremel tool and smack it with an impact driver. Kit

Yes you could drop the front wheel and do it that way. Those tapered head screws can be a bugger to get loose. A left handed drill bit might be the easiest way to get it out.

First use a propane torch and heat it up a bit. Maybe stripped, but probably frozen by corrosion. Then use a chisel and spin it counter-clockwise out. Sure, you'll trash the screw, but you can find another.

It happens alot with bike that have set years without having tire changes.
