Sheep stomach or haggis, Oahu?

I'm planning to make my own haggis for Burn's Night (Jan 25) this year, having completely failed to smuggle it in from Canada. Does anyone know where I can buy a sheep's stomach in Hawaii - or even better, a real haggis (canned does not count)?

Thanks for any advice!

    I'm not so sure about sheep, but could you substitute goat? I don't know that sheep is raised anywhere on the island, but there are goats. Sorry, I don't have a specific recommendation, but it might help guide your search.

      Thanks. I ended up contacting a few sausage-making-supplies companies, and they said that these days most people use beef bung (or cap) instead of sheep stomach, and I was able to order that online.

      I see by today's Wanda Adams column that you are alleviating your haggis hunger. I remember it fondly from our postdoctoral year in Cambridge.
