Try 40 Volume Peroxide and Bleach White

I had this problem myself once, the customer put his initials on the rack for I.D. I use them to recondition old antlers. Van Dykes carries both these products. Mix together and form a paste. Apply with a brush to the area, and let set a couple of hours. It may take a couple of applications, but it will eventually bleach out the spot. Then just blend with a little stain. Good luck

Acetone or Laquer thinner

If its your basic permanent marker,like a sharpie, laquer thinner or acetone on a rag will take it off real easy in seconds.
