camshaft removal

i am trying to remove my cam and it only comes out about 2.5 in. then stops. i have all the lifters held up with dowel rod so i couldnt be hung up on one of those, i would have figured you just wiggle it out...

is there a trick to getting these things out?

Fuel transfer pump if you have a mechanical, that would be about right for the plunger to come up against cam bearing boss.
Just a thought!
