Why pick a local tannery?

It seems as though everyone want to use a tannery that is geographicly close to them.I dont understand this.If you live close to a GOOD tannery great.If not dont be afraid to send the skins out to a good tannery even if they are a distance away.Fortunatly here in NY we have a couple of good tanneries in the eastern part of the state. Wilderness Fur Dressing and Interstate.Both do very good work.Tanning is a very important part of taxidermy,and to work with a bad tan is frustrating at best.Pick a good one and stick with them.
